    I'm not sure whether or not this will help, but Storwize v7000 supports flash drives which have the ability to be configured as a fast tier to other, slower, HDD storage. If this wasn't

    SSD storage in a V7K can be used to provide a fast storage tier for the provision of virtual disks or be used in an EasyTier storage pool to boost performance. The SSD can't be used to increase the size of the V7K controller/node cache, this is only the case in IBM XIV storage.

    Hope this helps
