Re: Network Drive Support

Sorry for stepping in but can you elaborate on your use case? A few comments in the meantime: On the client machine (while accessing fileshares): You might be interested in Windows Transparrent cache feature, which relies on Client Side Cache (CSC): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2UAMj28j7w On the...

Thank you, horizon. PrimoCache does track the data during the boot/logon and optimize the boot process. :)
Thanks. How does it work? Or is there any article on it? (Apart from one I linked... as L2 cache does not make sense in VDI scenarios.)

Re: Zero footprint cache

Encryption is for sure relevant requirement, however the issues is there with current L2 caching.
This (hypothetical) feature does not make it worse or better.

Logon process optimization

Hi, There could be helping a feature that pre-populates cache by blocks needed during the logon process. (=blocks required during + say 5 minutes after the logon). There are 2 use cases: 1. For nonVDI/normal scenario: The cache is be pre-populated opportunistically on the background of the logon dia...

This sounds like DMM feature of Ramdisk just working the other way around.
Almost. It's not only dynamic, but also perfectly seamless from disk capacity perspective, potentially using your SSD to the max... Costing you some L2 performance, of course... :)

Zero footprint cache

Hi, Zerofootprint cache is a concept used by Adaptiva Onesite product. It's described here: https://www.anoopcnair.com/achieve-footprint-caching-resolve-disk-space-issues-sccm/ Same concept could be used by L2 cached. (Assumes disk volume for other purposes.) How it looks like: 1. To OS (resp. disk ...

Consider following scenario: Disk1: 1 part (C: 128 GB SSD disk with system) Disk2: 1 part (D: 500 GB rotating disk with data) In order to accelerate the Disk by L2 cache I'd need to get an extra disk or resize partition on C: (which is a bit hassle) However I could create a dedicated VHD (or another...

Re: Performance drop with deferred writes active

This would be a risky feature. And not sure, if this is good idea. (Even Windows itself, prefers not to cache writes for removable storage by default.) ... so that "safe removal" of the device is not needed. (This is afaik since wxp. On olders systems the data loss was quite usual. )
