In DVX, we hold all data in use on flash on the host. Moreover, we guide customers to size host flash to hold all data for the VMDKs. With always-on dedupe/compression for host flash as well, this is feasible – with just 2TB flash on each host and 3X-5X data reduction you can have 6-10TB of effective flash.
