When LSI acquired SandForce they already had an existing area inside the company creating flash based products with existing SandForce technologies. The division was called the Accelerated Solutions Division. SandForce had already played a role in this new area contributing technology, expertise and silicon to WarpDrive, a bootable, low cost solution for easily increasing database server performance while lowering transaction times. The market and LSI liked what they saw in WarpDrive, the product was a success.
It didn't take LSI long to calculate the benefits of having a leading flash processor unit design team in house and so LSI, with the resources of being a top enterprise technology provider, acquired SandForce and grew the Accelerated Solutions Division. The Accelerated Solutions Division is wasting no time putting their combined resources to good use.
With the tag line "The Smarter Way to Faster", Nytro is the name of a new series of products designed to increase database and server transaction time. The idea of using high-speed flash memory to increase performance is nothing new to LSI.
CacheCade and CacheCade Pro made use of low cost flash products (SSDs) to accelerate performance of enterprise storage arrays. Later, WarpDrive was introduced and with it LSI's first all flash drive designed as a bootable, flash based array of low cost, redundant drives in a half height package.
Today LSI is introducing the next evolution of products - Nytro WarpDrive, Nytro XD and Nytro MegaRAID which will all be discussed in today article.
