Installation was pretty straight forward. There is an .exe for the management server which I installed on a separate Windows 2012 server and a host extension package which needs to be installed on the ESXi hosts. A back end SQL database is required but SQL Express is more than adequate. The installation guide that comes with the software is very thorough and walks you through all the steps. Once all the software has been installed and the management software has been configured to talk to your vCenter server then you simply install the plugin and a new PernixData tab is available within vCenter
Configuration is very simple as well and Jason Nash (blog / twitter) has an excellent post and video which I recommend you watch as it shows you how to configure your first FVP cluster and start viewing the results.
I've had FVP running in my lab for just over a day and the results speak for themselves
I've configured my FVP Cluster in write back mode which caches reads but also writes directly to the SSD without it having to wait for the the underlying storage to acknowledge the write and then de-stages the data through time
I'll write a bit more about it once I've had it running in the lab for a few more days but so far I'm extremely impressed with the software. If you have a homelab and a few spare SSD's I recommend you give it a try. Now all we need is for PernixData to give vEXPERTS a few NFR licenses for home use.
