For organizations who rely on Oracle* databases, the Intel® SSD Cache Controller RCS25ZB040, powered by LSI* Nytro* Technology, can significantly accelerate applications. It does this by caching frequently accessed data and significantly reducing the latency required to access it.

A test of an Oracle* database simulating a real-world online transaction application found that latency of the DAS-based HDD array was nine times higher than the same array with Intel RCS25ZB040 installed. Because of this test, it is believed that transaction response times for most Oracle databases with HDD array-based installations can be dramatically improved by adding an Intel RCS25ZB040.

This add-in card has a low profile, MD2 profile form factor, allowing it to be easily integrated into an existing DAS storage system. Furthermore, near plug and play set-up means that it can be installed without involvement from the database or application administrator.

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.
