Proximal Data outpacing VMware's vFRC with AutoCache

Source:  Proximal Data Inc.

Proximal Data offers its own version of host-based caching with AutoCache that, in many ways, is a step up from vFRC. In fact, one analyst said AutoCache makes VMware's vFRC look terrible in comparison. In addition to being easier to use, AutoCache supports both VMware and Hyper-V. As SSD prices drop and more flash storage makes its way into servers, administrators will want to take advantage of the hardware.
