Cache headache relief with new Cache-as-a-Service server

Can be installed within minutes without making complete changes to the data centre.

By CBR Staff Writer

Cirrus Data Solutions has started a new service for caching enterprise data, based on a Cache-as-a-Service model.

The application provider for managing and optimising storage area networks (SANs) has launched the Data Caching Sever to offer cache service to data centre service providers.

The Cirrus Data Caching Server is a fibre channel-based cache solution which can be installed within minutes quickly without making complete changes to the data centre.

The company said that the server can also be added as a permanent cache solution or used like a Cache-as-a-Service model for temporary cache needs.

The server has been developed on the company’s patented "Transparent Datapath Intercept" technology, which has been developed with a notion that data appliances should look like a wire when installed into a live SAN.

Cirrus Data Caching Server can be installed in-line between the switch and the storage unit, which eliminates the need of any changes to existing configuration.

Cirrus Data CEO Wayne Lam said, "Our new caching server and service represents a revolutionary way to address the need for speed for database administrators and a unique offering for service providers as the appliances can be installed and removed in a live production environment.
