The Western Digital company HGST rolls out new New PCIe SSD and Flash Caching Software that Provide Industry-leading I/O Performance. The company reveals its new FlashMax III family of PCIe accelerators that boost the performance of database and cloud workloads. As well as introduced new HGST ServerCache software that allows IT administrators to inject acceleration into their existing storage infrastructure by quickly and easily deploying a hybrid flash environment with any SSD.

Both, FlashMAX III PCIe SSD and ServerCache software are made to improve the performance of intensive applications including databases, SQL servers, data warehouses, big data deployment and video post-production applications. Each address distinct needs for flash storage solutions based on performance, capacity, cost and deployment time requirements.

The FlashMAX III PCIe accelerators built for extreme application performance that delivers up to 540,000 Random Read IOPS (4K) and up to 200,000 Mixed Sustained Random IOPS (70:30 R:W) from a single half-height, half-length PCIe SSD. It supports PCI Express 3.0, the latest version of the PCI Express interconnect supported by today’s newest server platforms.

The ServerCache server software eliminates storage bottlenecks by creating an SSD cache of the most frequently used data with up to a 10x improvement in performance utilizing any SSD. It delivers high performance with fewer SSDs, with little ongoing monitoring or expense, and absolutely no changes to existing storage infrastructure, applications and backup systems. It is compatible with a large variety of block-based storage and runs on any server application hosted on either a Storage Area Network (SAN) or Direct Attached Storage (DAS) system running Windows Server or Linux.

FlashMAX III will be available in Q3 2014, and is currently being qualified by select OEMs. ServerCache is available now for a free 30-day live trial download and one can contact to HGST authorized distributors for purchase.
