Today I’d like to announce that I have been selected as a PernixPro for 2015! It’s a program similar to VMware’s vExpert, Microsoft’s MVP, and other community awards for those that help spread the word about PernixData. I’m very proud to be a part of this program!

For those new to PernixData, the FVP product is a great means to boost storage performance underneath virtual machines. It can leverage local host-based SSDs for I/O read and write caching. It can also leverage host memory for I/O caching as well. Redundancy capabilities include synchronous mirroring of cached data to other hosts so that if a host fails, no data is lost. This platform is incredible, and Gareth wrote about this too but i have been using it to boost I/O performance underneath virtual SQL Servers for quite some time now. I look forward to some research soon showing some performance features once the home lab is back online soon!
