If you can get your hands on a Sun Flash Accelerator F40 PCIe Card, and you're running Oracle Database 11g Release 2 or later on Oracle Linux, you can use the Oracle Database Smart Flash Cache to improve performance and response times. That was a mouthful, so let me say it again.
- Configure Sun Flash Accelerator F40 PCIe Card as a file system.
- Configure Oracle Automatic Storage Management, a feature of Oracle Database, to use multiple Sun Flash Accelerator F40 PCIe Cards.
- Configure the Database Smart Flash Cache capability of Oracle Database.
Your pals at Jay Leno's garage can keep a 27-liter 1930 Bentley humming, but they can't help you with that little procedure can they? No worries, Rick Stenho may not own a Bentley, but he can help your database run faster.

Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition allows you to use flash devices to increase the effective size of the Oracle Database buffer cache (Level 2 cache) without adding more main memory. This capability is referred to as Database Smart Flash Cache. This article walks you through the steps required to take advantage of it.
Caution: Any performance advantages you obtain with smart flash cache will probably be nullified by the time you waste watching Jay Leno's garage.
