Storspeed unveils application-aware network attached storage product

Claims its product reduces overall storage footprint with no changes to existing operational procedures

By CBR Staff Writer

Storspeed has unveiled an application-aware caching platform, SP5000 to deliver predictable storage to customers’ applications regardless of backend storage infrastructure. The company claims that the new platform overcomes the drawbacks of conventional offerings, delivering fast storage performance to meet demanding application requirements while eliminating complexity and reducing expenses.

Storspeed said that with its new platform, IT managers can deliver enterprise-class performance from products typically used for ‘bulk’ data. Private storage clouds and SATA-based storage offerings fronted by Storspeed can deliver the high performance.

The company added that by coupling existing storage with low-cost SATA disks, Storspeed reduces the overall storage footprint with no changes to existing operational procedures.

According to Storspeed, its real-time traffic inspection engine identifies and accelerates user and application traffic automatically with no user intervention or complex tiering. Storage administrators have a reporting system that can identify storage ‘hot-spots’ and connect storage usage back to users, IP addresses, virtual machines, and applications in multi-vendor environments. Once these hot-spots are found they can be controlled and accelerated with its application-aware technology.

In addition, the SP5000 also takes advantage of both DRAM and FLASH memory technologies as it supporting 10 and 1 gigabit ethernet storage infrastructures. By adding nodes, a SP5000 configuration can be scaled to support millions of ops/sec and gigabytes of throughput, the company claimed.

Mark Cree, CEO of Storspeed, said: “IT managers now have the tools to ensure their application performance requirements are met regardless of the storage backend. Our advanced packet inspection engine enables the deployment of low-cost commodity storage while delivering enterprise-level performance. No longer do IT managers have to pay a premium for capacity in order to get performance.”

The Storspeed SP5000 application-aware caching appliance is available starting at $65,000 and includes 80 GB of DRAM, full suite of management and reporting software, and eight drive bays for flash-based SSDs.
