The Benefits of IBM FlashCache Storage Accelerator in Enterprise Solutions

Ensuring that business-critical data is available when needed is an ever-growing need in IT. Your systems must store massive amounts of data quickly and retrieve it efficiently. Simultaneously, you must use new technologies that can improve efficiency and take advantage of these technologies within limited budgets.

The IBM® FlashCache Storage Accelerator, combined with solid-state storage technologies, such as solid-state drives (SSDs) and PCIe SSD adapters, transparently increases the performance of storage subsystem by offering intelligent write-through caching capabilities, which can help decrease overall total cost of ownership (TCO) with the efficient utilization of server resources and lower software, power, cooling, and management costs.

This IBM Redpaper™ discusses server performance imbalance that can be found in typical application environments and how to address the issue with the FlashCache Storage Accelerator software to provide required levels of performance and availability for the storage-intensive applications.
