Tiered L2 Cache

Post by steamrick »

I can't be the only one with this scenario:
I'm replacing my old system drive SSD with a fancy new super-fast NVMe SSD.

I'd like to be able to use a couple GB of the NVMe as a quasi L1 Cache and use my old SATA SSD as my L2 cache. There's a factor 5 in read/write speed and IOPS between the two, after all.

Unfortunately, PrimoCache as it is now doesn't seem to support this functionality.

Sorry, L1 cache has to be memory cache as memory cache and SSD cache have different characteristics.
For tiered L2 Cache, a workaround is to create a Windows dynamic volume by using multiple SSD devices and then use this dynamic volume as level-2 cache.
