Technical Brief

This technical marketing brief shows how virtualizing Hadoop® (versus using a more conventional bare metal Hadoop deployment) improved the completion time for an aggregated set of standard benchmark tests by 26%. To help ensure that performance was not limited by storage, we equipped both the virtualized and bare metal deployments that we tested with Micron® M510DC SSDs.

Technical Brief

This technical marketing brief shows how Micron’s M510DC SSD enables 2.6X to 15X better virtualized Hadoop benchmark performance compared to HDDs.


VMware went all in with all-flash Virtual SAN with the launch of Virtual SAN 6.2 on February 10th 2016. The ability to dedupe and perform data compression are only available on the all flash configuration, and really help drive down the cost of storage. To fully take advantage of all these capabilities, though, you should look into optimizing your flash cache.

Happy 2016 to all! I wish you all the best for the year. After enjoying some time off during the holidays with my family, during the ‘short week’ in-between Christmas and New Year’s Day, I spent some time in the trusty home lab. In my last post, I described my findings running Jetstress using the Micron P420m PCI-E SSD as a VMFS datastore. This time, I did a similar set of...


In 2013, when VMware first released Virtual SAN (VSAN), Micron saw a significant opportunity to leverage solid state drives (SSDs) to maximize VSAN’s performance and functionality while extending additional benefits that are unattainable with standard HDDs. With the first release, we demoed an unsupported, all-SSD configuration at VMworld 2014 and saw a 10x performance...

vSphere Plug-In

Micron's plug-in for VMware ESXCLI provides a method for remotely managing and monitoring Micron SSDs. With the plug-in you can perform management tasks such as a firmware update or drive erase. You can also monitor drive properties such as model number, serial number, capacity, and SMART data.

ESXCLI is a command line tool for VMware vSphere ESXi 6.0 that enables ESXi to pro- vide a dynamic set of commands to users. The tool provides modular architecture for various components called namespaces running in the VMkernel. All commands contain metadata that describes the input, output, and other properties for that command. Using the metadata, the tool builds a set of commands that a user can execute. It presents the commands to the user on a local or remote prompt.
