I will defer to other vendors to comment on their own solutions, but the unique advantages of PernixData FVP software are:

·         Clustered platform compatible with all VMware operations: PernixData FVP uses patent-pending Flash Cluster™ technology to enable any host to remotely access the flash device(s) on any other host in the cluster. This technology enables PernixData FVP to seamlessly support all VMware operations and products, such as vMotion, DRS, HA, Snapshot, VDP, Site Recovery Manager™, Horizon View™ and vCloud Director®. Live migrations and distributed resource management functions continue to operate transparently with PernixData FVP, with no changes to workflows and no hits to application, network or storage performance.

·         Full read and write acceleration with fault tolerance: PernixData FVP supports full read and write (write through / write back) acceleration for maximum performance across all virtual applications. Writes are replicated across clustered hosts to ensure complete fault tolerance.

 ·         Seamless deployment:  FVP is installed inside the hypervisor kernel, not as a VM.  This increases performance and fault tolerance, and ensures seamless integration - i.e no changes (or reboots) are required to VMs, servers or primary storage.

I'm pretty sure Virident and NetApp are on this. Anyone using those?

This blog starts off as a decent tutorial then decends into an advertisement for the author's company.

Perspective, please: Who else has or is working on solutions to flash virtualization in the server? What are the pros and cons of the Pernix approach?

The Martian: A Delightful Exploration of Math, Mars & Feces

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
