FAST Cache allows you to leverage the lower response time and better IOPS of Flash drives without dedicating Flash drives to specific applications. Flash drives need not to be dedicated to specific applications anymore. This technology adjusts to a hot spot anywhere in the array, so you no longer need to analyze specific application requirements. It provides better performance to all applications in the storage system while using less Flash drives.

One of the major benefits of using FAST Cache is the improved application performance, especially for workloads with frequent and unpredictable large increases in I/O activity. The part of an application's working dataset that is frequently accessed is copied to the FAST Cache, so the application receives an immediate performance boost. FAST Cache enables applications to deliver consistent performance by absorbing heavy read/write loads at Flash drive speeds.

Another important benefit is improved total cost of ownership (TCO) of the system, which is realized because the load on back-end hard disk drives is reduced. FAST Cache copies the busy subsets of large storage capacities to Flash drives; as a result the busiest areas of many LUNs utilize a small set of Flash drives. This allows a large set of slower drives to deliver the performance typically provided by faster drives. Over a period of time faster Fiber Channel drives can be reduced or replaced with slower Fiber Channel or SATA drives, while maintaining the same application performance. This improves the financial (IOPS/dollar) and power (IOPS/KWH) efficiency of the storage system.
