The embedded flash and intelligent caching software helps cut execution times in Hadoop*-based datasets

Intel RAID Logo

The Intel® SSD Cache Controller RCS25ZB040, powered by LSI* Nytro* Technology, provides significantly benefits for Hadoop environments. It can reduce Hadoop execution times significantly and help IT teams reduce or redeploy up to a third of their servers in Hadoop environments.

The embedded flash and intelligent caching software of the Intel RCS25ZB04 drives Hadoop-based datasets, helping to cut execution times by as much as 33 percent1. Plus, these cards enable Hadoop jobs to be spread over fewer machines, which results in lower capital costs and decreased data center cooling and power costs. In a typical data center installation of 1,000 servers, an estimated savings of nearly $7.4 million over three years may be possible.

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.
