Part 3: Deploying a Hybrid SAN/NAS Volume
For my initial volume, I want to show you an example of accelerating SAN/NAS with host RAM, so I’ll select Hybrid.

On the Advanced Settings page, I’ve selected ‘Prefer Shared Storage for Volume’ which auto-selects the ‘Fast Sync’ option.

If I don’t select this option, server RAM will be used for the performance tier (default behavior). The Workload Ratio can be adjusted for Read Heavy, Write Heavy, Balanced, or Custom ratios.
