It isn't often that we travel to trades shows and find unannounced products hiding in plain sight. At AIS, however, this has become a trend with the Nytro products. Our own Chris Ramseyer spotted the original Nytro MegaRAID, and with no publicly available name he affectionately dubbed it the "WarpCache".

Fast forward a few years and the Nytro case still holds a few surprises. Instead of creating a name for the new drives, we will hand it off to Tony Afshary, the Director of Marketing at LSI.

While Tony doesn't provide us with performance specifications, he does reveal that these new Nytro products implement a DRAM caching layer into the solution. This satisfies the need for ultra-low latency performance in bleeding edge applications. Adding another layer of caching to the mix provides enhanced performance, but also introduces numerous challenges we will cover in another article when we go in-depth with each of the three new Nytro 7000 Series products.

Chris Ramseyer started his career as a LAN Party organizer in Midwest USA. After working with several computer companies he was asked to join the team at The Adrenaline Vault by fellow Midwest LAN Party legend Sean Aikins. After a series of shake ups at AVault, Chris eventually took over as Editor-in-Chief before leaving to start Real World Entertainment. Look for Chris to bring his unique methods of testing Hard Disk Drives, Solid State Drives as well as RAID controller and NAS boxes to TweakTown as he looks to provide an accurate test bed to make your purchasing decisions easier.
