Software works with industry-standard solid state drives to accelerate I/O constrained applications without migration, change or reconfiguration required; Software available to resellers as stand-alone solution or in bundles with Intel solid state drives.

The Intel® Cache Acceleration Software offers customers improved performance while preserving the current investment in software development and existing SSD storage.

Lifeboat Distribution, an international specialty software distributor for virtualization and other technically sophisticated products, today announced that it will distribute Intel® Cache Acceleration Software (CAS) to its worldwide network of resellers and solution providers. Intel Cache Acceleration Software works in conjunction with industry-standard solid state drive (SSD) storage units to speed up existing software applications running on dedicated servers or virtual machines (VMs), whose performance is limited by input/output constraints.

Additionally, because of the current worldwide shortage of SSDs, Lifeboat Distribution will also offer resellers a supply of Intel solid state drives to be sold in solution bundles in conjunction with Intel Cache Acceleration Software.

"We are delighted with the opportunities that Intel® Cache Acceleration Software solutions afford our worldwide channel network," said Dan Jamieson, Vice President and General Manager, Lifeboat Distribution. "Our reseller partners will see a tremendous upside with Intel CAS solutions – with great return on investment for their customers and excellent opportunity for add-on storage sales and for ongoing customer engagement on application performance."

"The Intel® Cache Acceleration Software offers customers improved performance while preserving the current investment in software development and existing SSD storage," said Jake Smith, general manager of Attached Platform Storage Software at Intel. "With Lifeboat Distribution, Intel® CAS will reach new markets to offer enterprise customers improved performance, seamless deployment and reduced costs."

Any solid state drive supported by the Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems will work with – and deliver the performance benefits of – Intel CAS. Lifeboat will have a supply of Intel® 910 Series, Intel® DC S3700 Series and Intel® DC S3500 Series drives for reseller to sell in defined solution bundles with Intel Cache Acceleration Software.

Intel Cache Acceleration Software will be promoted to resellers as part of Lifeboat's exclusive World View software ecosystems.
