Use FlexCache to scale up databases?

In Ontap 7.3.2, FlexCache is able to do block-based synchronization.  Is there any way to leverage this feature to scale up a database in environments that require huge amount of database updates?  thx

Re: Use FlexCache to scale up databases?

Hi and welcome to the Communities!

Flex Cache is a write-through cache, so it doesn't help with write performance at all.

Block-based synchronization simply means that if a file at the origin system is updated, only changed blocks are sent to the FlexCache system, instead of updating entire file.
