The Nytro™ WarpDrive© BLP4-800 application acceleration card is designed to make Web serving, big data, data warehousing, and OLTP applications absolutely fly by adding flash cache to servers. Enabling high performance, low latency, and a low CPU burden, the Nytro WarpDrive flash accelerator card accelerates applications regardless of the mix of reads and writes. With 800GB of on-board NAND flash memory, a single Nytro WarpDrive card can do the job of hundreds of spinning hard disk drives (HDDs) while significantly reducing power, cooling and physical space requirements for a lower TCO. And with a PCIe© host interface, industry standard drivers and small form factor, the Nytro card is flexible and easier to integrate into today’s low profile, high performance system chassis.

The end result: Achieve improved data-intensive application performance simply and efficiently while lowering total cost of ownership.
