Intel Releases Updated SSD Cache Acceleration Software for Linux Servers
Intel is now addressing the Linux server enterprise market segment by offering their CAS or Cache Acceleration Software for Linux-based servers–specifically 64-bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 5/6, CentOS 5/6, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11* SP1. Intel Cache Acceleration Software seamlessly accelerates targeted applications running on virtual machines and physical servers. No migration effort or storage and/or application configuration are needed, although the server must utilize a SSD from the Intel SSD Data Center Family which includes the Intel SSD DC S3700 series and Intel SSD 910 Series (directly attached or remote).
Intel Cache Acceleration Software selectively optimizes caching, allowing administrators to target storage performance directly to the applications/data. This provides precise control of what gets cached…down to the application or file level, and in some cases even individual database tables.
Intel Cache Acceleration Software cooperatively integrates the cache on the Intel SSD and the server DRAM cache, creating a multi-level cache that optimizes the use of system memory and automatically determines the best cache level for active data.
The Linux server capability is available now, and a free 30 day trial may be downloaded from here.
