FAST Storage Design Basics for EMC VNX
The session introduces the notion of Skew, and outline two approaches to using tiered storage to leverage skew. This session also includes discussions of FAST Cache and FAST VP with SSD, when to use one or both together and what tools are available to help right size the tiered configuration. Also we'll cover use of SAS drives between the SSD and NL-SAS layer.
Objective 1: Understand a skew measurement from a EMC field engineer.
After this session you will be able to:
Objective 2: Understand how pools are built and the ramifications of pool design.
Objective 3: Understand the basics of pool design at the system level.
