Buffer pool extensions on shared SSD

sql2014

#1

Has anyone had any experience with extending the buffer pool onto an SSD drive that is shared ? For instance, if we had a mirrored system drive(The C logical partition) on SSD's, can we use the remaining space on that mirrored partition to extend my SQL 2014 buffer pool ? I understand that in this scenario, there is some competition for the I/O throughput between SQL Server's extended buffer pool and the OS. We intend to have the pagefile on a different disk, other than this specific SSD.
