Intel introduces Intel Cache Acceleration Software for Linux
Feb 27, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Intel Corporation, which designs, manufactures, and sells computer components and related products, has introduced Intel Cache Acceleration Software, or CAS, for Linux that prioritizes application performance, providing solid-state drive, or SSD, levels of speed without migration costs, and built-in data integrity for Intel's SSD data center family of products.
The Linux version of the software will be generally available within 30 days as an enterprise subscription and open source release. It will complement the existing Intel CAS 2.0 for Windows that is available today, the company said.
Chuck Brown, product line manager for Intel's Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group, said: "Intel CAS complements our SSD data center family by providing a total caching solution that delivers even more value and capability for our customers.
"Intel CAS delivers a multi-level cache across the SSD and DRAM for optimal performance. Compared to short-stroked hard-drive technology, we've seen up to 50 times the improvement in I/O performance throughput for read intensive workloads by adding Intel CAS with the Intel SSD 910 series1."
James Bagley, senior analyst at Storage Strategies-NOW, said: "With the combination of Intel CAS and the Intel 910 PCIe SSD, Intel has a solution that is a game changer for server-side caching. It allows IT to easily add more performance to their existing storage infrastructure, delivering SSD levels of speed without a complete data migration."
