IBM FlashCache Storage Accelerator


As organizations are challenged by swelling data volumes, increasing demand for faster analytic insights, and rising data center energy costs, Flash storage is quickly becoming a key requirement to enable the smarter enterprise. Flash can speed response times of information gathering in servers and storage systems from milliseconds to microseconds. With no moving parts, Flash is also reliable, durable and energy efficient. Deploying and managing Flash across a diverse IT infrastructure, however, can be costly and a challenge for many organizations, as ongoing tuning and data placement is often needed to maintain system performance, particularly in virtual environments.

IBM FlashCache Storage Accelerator is a highly advanced intelligent caching software for IBM® System x®, BladeCenter® and IBM Flex System™ servers that enables Flash and hard drive storage to transparently and cost effectively work together. It delivers the high performance of Flash without the need for manual tuning and administration. Adaptable to almost every IT infrastructure, and especially useful in virtual environments, IBM FlashCache Storage Accelerator enables enterprises to easily and immediately speed data-intensive applications, while lowering storage costs and increasing system density and utilization.
