Storage Strategies Now: Mt. Rainier Technology and its Unique Caching Capabilities
Performance of servers in virtualized environments can be greatly enhanced by the use of a high-speed bus-attached cache and software that intelligently monitors ‘hot’ data and keeps a local copy for future read operations.
However, the drawbacks of this implementation include the creation of an expensive single point of failure, server device drivers that steal precious CPU cycles and complications when a virtual workload is migrated to a different physical machine.
This white paper explores a unique implementation that greatly simplifies the use of a server-side cache while solving these inherent problems. This is a new type of storage accelerator and represents a new category of caching. Read now to learn more.
