  • How to configure FAST Cache
  • How to create heterogenous pools, what is the point in that
  • How to configure a RAID group, you can put traditional LUNs on
  • How to provision storage, create traditional, thin and thick LUNs
  • Register Windows host with VNX system via iSCSI connection

  1. Hi ..
    What is FAST cache in VNX is it same as we do FAST (fully automated storage tiering)in VMAX or it diffident terminology in VNX .

  2. FAST Cache is a different Feature in VNX the goal of FAST Cache to expand VNX system cache by using Flash disk to enhance overall system performance.
    all IO either Read or Write are using system cache as much system cache you have as you get performance.
    System cache size is the is very important component form system performance point of view.
