EMC gives Project Lightning a name

Dave Raffo Dave Raffo Profile: Dave Raffo

EMC failed to push its Project Lightning server-based PCIe solid-state flash product out the door by the end of 2011 as the vendor pledged, but industry sources say it will officially launch soon under the name of VFCache.

EMC recently registered a trademark for the VFCache name under the description: “Computer hardware, namely, data caching devices including flash memory devices and computer software for data storage and data management.” The vendor previewed Project Lightning at EMC World in May and released it to beta later in the year. The only surprises left are what partners – if any – EMC will use for the product. VFCache is expected to work with EMC’s FAST tiering software, but whose PCIe flash will EMC use?
