Unprecedented Storage Performance for VMware | Infinio

Infinio Sets New Standard Benchmark
of 22x the IOPs for High I/O Workloads

Optimized for next-gen storage class memory such as Intel Optane and Samsung Z-NAND

Cambridge, MA December 18, 2018: Infinio Systems, the leading provider of software-based storage acceleration for VMware, announces the release of version 3.5 of Infinio Accelerator software.  With this release, Infinio sets a new benchmark of 22X increase in IOPs for workloads with larger working sets, like databases, file shares, email servers, etc.

Accelerator 3.5 introduces Cache Resource Targeting, a new feature that optimizes how the cache applies its resources, targeting the virtual machines that need it most and can use it best.  Additionally, when the cache must forward a read request to storage this operation is biased towards large block reads; those which most arrays are best able to serve.  This feature set further enhances Infinio Accelerator’s ability to put latent resources to work in a way that enhances the overall performance of the ESXi I/O subsystem across a broad range of workloads.

Accelerator 3.5 also introduces an enhancement that further improves cache performance for very large, very active, virtual disks.  This enhancement uses a paging technique so that the cache is never limited in the data addresses that it can reference.  This substantially increase the performance of the cache in the aforementioned cases, allowing Accelerator to more effectively target all variations of large, high I/O, workloads.

The combination of these two performance focused features, as well as various minor optimizations and improvements, make Accelerator 3.5 the most advanced and most performant caching I/O Filter Infinio has released to market.
