VMAX FlashBoost Overview

Customers want more and more performance to meet growing workload demands, and as a result are buying more and more flash. But, flash is about more than just the hardware – flash performance is dependent on the software used to manage the I/ O to and from the drive. To help our customers realize even more performance from their hybrid arrays, EMC is announcing FlashBoost™. This latest flash software innovation from EMC improves VMAX™ performance by up to 75% and allows customers to run more latency intolerant workloads inside a hybrid array while meeting cost and service level targets. This technical note is intended for anyone who needs to understand the use of FlashBoost in combination with the VMAX platform.
