SSDs are very resilient and provide faster access to data.
SSD enablement results in several benefits:
- Use VMFS datastores that are created on SSD storage devices to allocate space for ESXi host cache.
- Use local SSDs for such features as Flash Read Cache and Virtual SAN.
- Use of SSDs increases virtual machine consolidation ratio as SSDs can provide very high I/O throughput.
- It supports identification of virtual SSD device by the guest operating system.
