AutoCache with I/O Intelligence

Proximal Data's AutoCache, with its patented I/O Intelligence™, cost effectively solves I/O bottlenecks in virtualized servers. AutoCache is the intelligence inside the hypervisor that decides which I/O to place on a local flash device, which improves storage performance, cost, and efficiency.

AutoCache enables most I/O workloads to benefit from a modest amount of Flash (3-400GB) where needed, amounting to a solution cost that is under $2K to deploy.

Key Benefits of AutoCache

Better performance for virtualized infrastructure

  • Hardware agnostic - uses PCIe or SSD flash devices from server vendors or PCIe vendors (Intel, LSI, or Micron)
  • Read cache, with write thru and write around, only needs a modest amount of flash (eMLC works great)
  • Up to 3X VM density ensures higher ROI and lower TCO
  • Business critical applications can now run on virtualized servers
  • Enables new levels of performance SLAs
  • Offloads primary datastore prolonging its life - all other applications on that datastore run better and can use cheaper primary storage

Easy to use

  • No need for agents in guest OSs
  • No impact to IT operations, processes or procedures (i.e., backups and replication)
  • Saves valuable sysadmin time

Purpose built for ESXi

  • Single VIB to install
  • Fully supports VMware vMotion, DRS, Storage DRS, etc.
  • Managed within VMware vSphere/vCenter framework
  • vCenter plug-in supports role-based administration for enterprises and cloud service providers
  • Pre-warms cache upon vMotion to maintain optimal performance in a dynamically changing environment
