RAM Caching Vs. SSDs: A Startup’s Gamble
Startup Infinio bucks the SSD trend by using RAM caching instead of flash to accelerate NFS storage performance. Is it a good bet?
One of the things I enjoy most about attending Tech Field Day events is when innovative companies are brave enough to make their first public appearances in front of an obstreperous group of bloggers and on live Internet video. The latest to run the TFD gauntlet is Infinio. Its Infinio Accelerator bucks the trend of using SSDs to accelerate NFS storage performance for vSphere hosts, and instead uses server RAM as a cache.
