A solid- state drive-based Cache Acceleration Software (CAS) for Linux servers introduced by Intel Corp. today can dramatically speed up the performance of read-intensive applications, according to the microprocessor company.
Intel said its CAS can triple the performance of SSDs on standard databases and offer up to 18 times improved performance on read-intensive online transaction processing applications. The product supports caching on NAND flash (solid-state and PCIe cards) in storage arrays and VMware vMotion, according to Andrew Flint, CAS product manager for Intel.
Intel obtained its SSD-based Cache Acceleration Software technology from its buyout of Canadian startup Nevex Virtual Technologies.
