When IT pushes hard disk drives (HDD) arrays to reach their I/O potential, data “hot spots” become inevitable. Utilizing a small solid state drive (SSD) investment as a front-side flash cache for the much larger disk array, LSI® MegaRAID® CacheCade® Pro 2.0 software dynamically keeps the “hottest” data in flash memory. This can dramatically improve read/write speeds and drop latency.

  • Unlock substantial performance gains from HDD arrays with minimal SSD investment
  • Assign and manage the SSD pool with intuitive management software
  • Eliminate or reduce wasted capacity caused by short-stroking hard disk drives
  • Extend HDD longevity by reducing wear from the most commonly accessed data
