Hybrid Storage Pool in the S7000 series

Just as i wrote about SSD in the S7000, Brendan wrote an article about the top speed performance and performance characteristics of the hybrid storage pool in the S7000 series.

When the HSP uses read and write optimized flash memory SSDs the NFS I/O latency can reach as low as 0.1 ms, compared to 2 to 10 ms without these SSDs (disk + DRAM only.) These results aren't really surprising considering the technology.
