For organizations with SQL server databases, the Intel® SSD Cache Controller RCS25ZB040, powered by LSI* Nytro* Technology, offers significant application acceleration. It achieves this by combining on-board flash technology with RAID-on-Chip (ROC) technology.

Plus, the Intel RCS25ZB040 delivers low latency responses from flash storage and economy by using direct-attached HDD storage. Through intelligent caching algorithms the controller identifies application “hot spots” and stores this data onto the on-card eMLC NAND flash. In a lab test designed to simulate a real world SQL Server, a latency reduction of 80% was observed for online transaction processing .

The Intel SSD Cache Controller RCS25ZB040 is the industry’s only all-in-one solution integrating hardware RAID protection with onboard PCIe flash for data storage and/or intelligent read/write caching. The free integrated intelligent caching software removes I/O bottlenecks and increases performance in many applications including databases, indexing, Big Data/Hadoop, Gluster and VDI.
