Improve Application Performance

Improve Application Performance with Intel® Cache Acceleration Software (Intel® CAS)

Today’s data centers are held back by storage I/O that cannot keep up with ever-increasing demand, preventing systems from reaching their full performance potential. Traditional solutions, such as increasing storage, servers, or memory, add huge expense and complexity.

Intel® Cache Acceleration Software (Intel® CAS), combined with high-performance Solid State Drives (SSDs), increases data center performance via intelligent caching rather than extreme spending. Intel® CAS interoperates with server memory to create a multilevel cache that optimizes the use of system memory and automatically determines the best cache level for active data, allowing applications to perform even faster than running fully on flash/SSDs.1

Accelerate Your Scale-Out Storage Performance

Yahoo needed a faster, lower cost way to process hot data for 1 billion users a day. They got it by deploying Intel® Cache Acceleration Software (CAS) 3.0 on the Intel® SSD data center family for PCIe* in their existing Ceph* environment.

Reduce I/O Latency with an Intel® SSD Data Center (Intel® SSD DC) Bundle

Save time and money with confidence: Purchase an Intel® SSD Data Center (Intel® SSD DC) together with Intel® CAS and you may be eligible for discount (vs. purchasing separately), and ease software management compliance and overhead. Intel® CAS software is licensed per SSD and includes one year of standard support. Intel® Data Center SSD’s when paired with Intel® CAS is a solution that addresses the most challenging data center workloads.
