EMC announces PCIe Flash Cache--Fusion IO gets its first major competitor

In another demonstration of genuine leadership and street fighting spirit EMC announced today the availability of VFCache, otherwise known as Project Lightning. Simply put, VFCache is a 300GB SLC-flash on a PCIe card, designed to go into a server which is running an IO starved application, perhaps even after using the fastest HDDs and even array-based SSDs. Such applications are more prevalent than one might think. In fact, more and more applications have become IO-starved over the past decade as CPUs and networks have become faster and storage has improved marginally, if at all. The product is also GA at the same time.
