Setting up dedicated SSD cache
Posted on 2016-10-02
I've seen servers setup to use a dedicated cache with an SSD (the two DL320 and DL380's I've seen even have a SFF spot for it). I have a tower server (ML110) and my question is what is this caching all about and if I want to use it, how do I set it up? Via the Intel Storage setup? I have a Samsung 840 EVO Pro so probably overkill, but it's sitting around and I'm not using it. Is there a benefit? Mind you, I use my server at home as a DNS, AD DS, DHCP and file server with only 4-5 hosts so definitely not an intense production environment.
