CacheBox application acceleration software increases on-line transactions per second by 56x while reducing latency by 98%

12 Aug 2014 San Carlos - CacheBox Inc. has added Seagate's 1200 SSD to the company's Hardware Compatibility List. A 12G SAS drive, the 1200 SSD joins other enterprise SSDs that CacheBox has qualified for use with CacheAdvance, CacheBox's unique application acceleration software that enables significant improvements in application throughput and processing with no disruption to a company's compute or storage infrastructure.

"Delivering consistent and predictable application performance continues to be a top challenge to IT teams in today's data centres", stated Lorenzo Salhi, CacheBox CEO. "Leveraging easy to deploy, high performance enterprise SSDs like Seagate's 1200 family, goes a long way to realizing this requirement."

Gary Gentry, senior vice president and general manager, SSD at Seagate stated: "CacheBox takes application acceleration to the next level. Their innovative approach combined with Seagate 1200 SSDs help delivers business value to the enterprise data centre."

CacheBox's internal testing of CacheAdvance shows significant performance improvements and latency reductions over hard disk storage with MySQL, and enables customers to realize the most cost-effective solution for bridging the application requirements of performance and capacity.

CacheAdvance is a software-only, application centric solution that removes application input/output (IO) bottlenecks in a targeted manner. It works by monitoring application IO requests and intelligently determines which data to accelerate to provide optimal performance and user experience.
