Enterprise Flash Caching Software

Deduplication for Enterprise Flash Caching Software

The Challenge

A leading storage supplier provides flash caching software that improves performance by caching frequently accessed data to solid state storage and manages cost by ensuring that older data is moved to spinning disk. The limiting factor in this approach is always the cost of flash itself.  Without enough flash, the solutions cannot perform any better than traditional hard drives.

The Solution

This vendor determined that deduplication technology would allow them to substantially increase the amount of data they could cache in flash, so they turned to Permabit.  Using just 6 API calls, the vendor was able to get up and running with the Albireo SDK in under a month. Albireo deduplication provides the competitive edge this vendor needed to extend the amount of flash cache managed by their solution, without increasing costs.
