PernixData FVP software is Flash Hypervisor software that aggregates server flash across a virtualized data center, creating a scale-out data tier for accelerating reads and writes to primary storage. This allows storage performance to grow independently of storage capacity, giving you more control over application performance.

Installation details

For detailed information on installing PernixData FVP, refer to the PernixData FVP Install Guide.

Configuration details

The FVP configuration is a three-step process:
  1. Create a flash cluster via the PernixData FVP UI Plugin.
  2. Add flash devices.
  3. Add VMs/datastores that need to be accelerated in either Write Through or Write Back mode.
For more information, refer to the PernixData FVP User Guide.
