During the recent VMworld Europe, I’ve got the opportunity to talk with Serge Shats, CTO FlashSoft a division of SanDisk about their storage cache product and their users cases in virtualization projects.

By talking about SanDisk, most people think about the “consumer” market of the flash cards, where it’s well know. But SanDisk it’s not only flash cards, considering that they also product Solid State Devices (SSDs) for desktops, laptops, and ultrabooks.

In the EMEA region they have offices in UK, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain with more than 50 people. […]
During the last VMworld US, I’ve spend some to to visit several booths to know more about some vendor that are not present in my Country (or in the entire region).
