LSI have announced that their Nytro WarpDrive family of PCIe-based flash cards have been validated for use with NetApp, Inc.'s Flash Accel software. LSI have worked with NetApp to offer a complete server flash caching solution that injects some serious speed into application performance by converting server-based flash into 'hot' data cache for critical business applications.

Nytro WarpDrive cards are some of the first PCIe-based products to be tested and qualified to work with NetApp's intelligent server caching software. Tim Russell, VP of data lifecycle ecosystem group with NetApp, says:

 

Flash memory adoption in the enterprise is a powerful complement to hard-disk-based network storage. Deploying flash as a high-speed cache in the server is a simple and cost-effective way to reduce latency and I/O bottlenecks, while providing enterprise-level data protection and manageability for the entire infrastructure. Working with our server cache partners, we're able to offer customers a complete end-to-end, high-speed solution.

 

LSI and NetApp server caching solutions provide the following:

  • Automated and intelligent caching of hot data to PCIe flash storage
  • Increased application responsiveness and reduced latency
  • Optimised cost per IOPS and cost per gigabyte across flash and HDDs
  • Power, cooling and physical footprint savings, reducing TCO
  • Tested end-to-end solution simple to use
