Technical Brief

Learn how Micron 9200 Series of NVMe SSDs and 5100 SATA SSDs give you control of performance and capacity


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.


Build an IT infrastructure that handles the demands of large, complex data sets. Micron Accelerated Solutions include servers, software and storage that have been architected, optimized, tuned and tested to ensure top performance for your business needs.

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 or higher that enables ESXi to provide 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.
