Many Enterprises are looking to increase the performance of their mission critical databases to accelerate their business processes. The emerging all-flash storage arrays require a complete replacement of existing disk arrays, incurring high capital and data migration costs, as well as lacking in mature storage management features that customers have depended on for years. "Server-side flash does not scale to cache all active data, making its latency and throughput profile more similar to that of spinning disks than flash memory", stated Bang Change, CEO of CacheIO. "CacheIO network cache scales to 23TB flash capacity per RU (Rack Unit) at one-fifth the cost of all-flash arrays, servicing all active data at sub millisecond latency while increasing disk array utilization from 30% to 80%. As a shared network resource, CacheIO Flash cache allows service providers and enterprise customers to monetize performance by dynamically based on service provisioning performance Level agreements."
"We are always looking for emerging technology database that can accelerate performance and increase disk utilization and help us also preserve existing legacy storage investments to serve the ever increasing need for capacity. CacheIO has demonstrated one of the top transactions-per-minute benchmark results accelerating low cost iSCSI SATA storage. To a service provider like Orange, it has the important benefit of provisioning performance based on SLAs, allowing us to monetize performance as a utility", stated Jerome Laudouar, VP, IT Infrastructure Technologies & Engineering of Orange.
"Storage used to be the bottleneck in supercomputing environments and being neglected due to limitation of rotating drives. With Flash SSD performance with technology maturing and the abundance of I /O bandwidth offered by the Intel Xeon server platforms, we are able to create unique and purpose-built solutions to improve and push the storage performance envelope to a new high. FlacheSAN2 solution is designed specifically for SSD flash to address the performance bottleneck while increasing energy efficiency and storage density", stated Gene Lee, President and CEO of Echostreams Innovative Solutions. "Our FlacheSAN2 solution provides users twice the storage capacity and twice the performance while able to maintain less CapEx and OpEx costs compare to any competing solution."
