Review

Just in case you aren’t familiar with PernixData FVP we’ll provide a quick review.  PernixData is a software based solution used in a VMware vSphere environment that can reduce latency and increase throughput by leveraging host based SSDs.  The software utilizes local Solid State disks to lower latencies to traditional storage arrays.  Think about it, the closer the disks are to the processor, the lower the latency should be, or so the theory goes.

If you’d like to understand this better, please check out my first post on PernixData.
