Incredible IOPS increase in storage: IOPS is required to fulfill a disk job faster. It is input/output per second. When you request a report on your SQL server, you need as much as IOPS you can. So many IT guys put their most important databases on SSD disks to reach the maximum IOPS within their storage. But SSD disks are still so expensive. On the other hand, if you have multiple VDI systems in different locations, you will experience boot storm every morning on your VM servers. You need IOPS to handle this problem and it leads you to buying more SSD.
With FVP deployment, you create more IOPS than by adding SSD disks, with a lower rice. Additionally, you will be able to create tiering across your clusters.
- Architect dashboard tool: You can see the overall performance of your FVP cluster. It even provides valuable info that VMware can't report to the user about the VM performance. You can add sources on your cluster or move VM systems among tiered clusters. Also, it is possible to see the amount of latency decrease and IOPS created without adding any SSDs to the storage.
- Low initial cost
- Works with different flash resources such as NV PCI cards, memory and SSD
- Ease of use
