What are flash pools for SSD?


Hello Julian,

Flash pools are launched by NetApp, it is for SSD. It is says to be a caching method for RAID groups which combine solid-state drivers (SSD) and hard drives. Flash pools mix SSD and hard drives to accelerate reads and writes. They let customers combine SSD's and hard drives to aggregate of RAID groups. Flash pools can include 300gb per volume of SSD's.

The company's flash pools technology is different from NetApp's Flash Cache product. Although NetApp calls Flash Cache and Flash Pools virtual storage tiers, they are really caches rather than tiers.

Flash pools will eventually become available on the FAS2240, which was launched in November and NetApp's other recent products. With flash pools you can give a workload its own aggregate and not have that workload disputed by other workloads.

Hope you get the answer.
