Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 19, 2011
Cache IQ, an enterprise storage solutions company, announced today the limited release of their RapidCache solution. This intelligent, high-performance network attached storage (NAS) caching appliance delivers enhanced performance to I/O intensive applications while relieving overburdened storage subsystems. RapidCache identifies applications’ active data sets, and then uses a combination of DRAM and SSDs to dramatically improve performance.
“Cache IQ’s new approach will please enterprise NAS storage managers,” says George Crump of Storage Switzerland, a leading industry analyst. “Finally, an all-in-one caching solution that doesn’t require an upgrade of your current NAS systems. RapidCache actually makes existing storage work faster and smarter. The cache is now the performance tier responsible for data delivery.”
Unlike other NAS accelerators, RapidCache provides a smart approach to NAS caching by using simple policies to control what data gets cached—guaranteeing the best performance for the most important applications. RapidCache also delivers unprecedented insight into storage through RapidView™, its fully integrated analytics and visualization product. By providing complete visibility, RapidView enables administrators to assess network storage performance and troubleshoot and solve problems quickly and efficiently.
RapidCache installs seamlessly in the network—requiring no changes to clients, applications or storage—and accelerates performance to multiple backend subsystems regardless of vendor.
“We are excited to be working with leading enterprise storage teams to showcase our solution. With RapidCache, enterprises no longer have to buy capacity just to get performance,” said Greg Dahl, Executive Vice President, Products and Strategy of Cache IQ. “Instead of blindly caching data or attempting to tier storage, RapidCache maximizes existing storage investments. We provide complete usage visibility, speed up your applications by caching the most critical data, and automatically troubleshooting bottlenecks.”
Cache IQ will showcase RapidCache at booth 507 at Storage Networking World on October 10-13 in Orlando, Florida.
