CacheBox certifies Micron P420m for use with CacheADVANCE software

CacheBox certifies the Micron P420m to speed up HDD infrastructure with CacheADVANCE software (NASDAQ:MU)

| IT/Datacenter News | Posted: Apr 8, 2014 3:51 pm

Our evaluation of the Micron P420m PCIe SSD ended on a high note; the P420m delivers a plentiful helping of performance at a very friendly price-point. The key to mass adoption of flash in the enterprise will always be centered around value, and combining a hefty 1.4TB chunk of flash acceleration to existing infrastructure is a great proposition.

Today CacheBox announced the addition of the P420m PCIe SSD to their compatibility list. The P420m joins other Micron SSDs as certified for use in CacheBox's CacheADVANCE application acceleration software. CacheADVANCE leverages flash solutions to speed existing HDD infrastructure without disrupting the existing environment.

 

Providing the speed of flash for hot data, and the capacity of bulk HDD storage for colder data, is the most economical deployment model for flash in the datacenter. This marriage of Micron's P420m and CacheADVANCE software nets a 14X increase in performance and a 93% latency reduction in CacheBox's MySQL OLTP workload testing.
