Enterprise data is increasing at a staggering rate, and applications need to access that data faster than ever before. Hard drive speeds cannot keep up with the significant performance gains provided by Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers. Critical business applications are "data starved" as they wait for legacy mechanical hard drives to catch up.
Intel® Cache Acceleration Software offers an innovative solution to this challenge by using an Intel® SSD for data centers as a cache for data that is frequently accessed. By storing a copy of this "hot" data in the SSD, server applications run faster. Get up to 3 times more performance on transactional database processing and up to 20 times faster processing of read-intensive business analytics.1
Intel® Cache Acceleration Software (Intel® CAS) allows enterprise applications to maximize performance and eliminate I/O bottlenecks with very low effort and upfront costs.
Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
