The feature allows SSD cache capacities of up to 3.2TB, improving performance by up to 16 times while response time is lowered by as much as 88%. The SSD cache is easy to install and manage, offering a convenient tool for SMBs to gain performing storage.
Cache is fundamental to storage, especially read-intensive applications. SSD Cache allows fast SSD to be used to extend the cache pool capacity of storage systems so that vital (or high 'hotness') applications run faster. EonStor DS-1000/DS-3000 systems tested with SSD Cache technology show up to a 16-fold increase in cache IO/s figures, while saving as much as 88% on response time.
The SSD cache moves copies of the most frequently-accessed data from HDDs to SSDs automatically. Thanks to the GUI, virtually no effort is required for maintenance or additional management.
"SSD Cache adds to a range of SSD-optimized features offered by Infortrend systems, enabling the future of better performance and improved efficiency customers demand. This is particularly important for SMBs," commented Thomas Kao, senior director of product planning, Infortrend.
SSD Cache is available for the EonStor DS 1000/DS 3000 Series.
