Are you looking to increase storage performance while preserving your current direct-attached storage (DAS) investments?

The Nytro™ MegaRAID® NMR 8100-4i card is designed to accelerate key business applications – including big data, VDI and databases – by using intelligent caching algorithms to identify application “hot spots” and promote them to fast onboard flash (100GB). Nytro MegaRAID cards deliver intelligent application acceleration and enterprise level data protection at a lower cost than SSD-only arrays. And it’s designed to be easy to use with your current applications and storage environment.

It’s DAS acceleration, evolved.
