Accelerating the SAN, with the Server

Just a few short months ago, a number of vendors in the market started introducing flash-based, in-the-server, storage acceleration technologies that we label Server-based Storage Accelerators (which I also refer to as “accelerators” in this article). Across the board, such devices were primarily PCIe form factor cards with on-board flash memory that plugged into a server motherboard slot. Through driver or other software inserted into the server OS’s software stack, the solution would intercept I/Os, cache data from SAN-attached disk onto a NAND-flash cache, and then redirect future I/O requests to that cache.
