  • 1. ADAPTEC maxCache TM 3.0Read and Write SSD Caching Solution
  • 2. THE DATA CENTER CHALLENGEToday’s data centers and cloud computing environments must providehigh I/O performance and low latency in order to support growing userbases and large-scale applications such as web serving, file serving,databases, online transaction processing (OLTP), Microsoft ExchangeServer, and high performance computing (HPC). READ MORE! Go to www.adaptec.com/maxcache 2 Follow us on twitter @Adaptec_by_PMC
  • 3. THE DATA CENTER CHALLENGE Tight budgets compel data centers to increase the number of users hosted per server in order to reduce the cost of service (COS) as well as the Capital Expense (CapEx) and Operating Expense (OpEx) of additional hardware But adding more users to a server causes an increase in latency and a decrease in I/Os per second (IOPS) Users Hosted per Server READ MORE!

  • 4. HOW CRUCIAL IS WEBSITE PERFORMANCETO BUSINESS? Akamai: 30%-50% of transactions that take over 4 seconds, bail out1 Amazon: Shopzilla: 5-second speedup resulted in 25% pageview increase, 10% increase in revenue, 50% decrease in 100ms hardware, and a 120% increase in in Latency costs traffic from Google1 78% of site visitors have gone to a competitor’s site due to poor performance during peak times2 1% in sales1 88% are less likely to return to a site after a poor user experience2 1“Latency: The Achilles Heel of Cloud Computing”; Internap whitepaper 2“When more Website visitors hurt your business: Are you ready for peak traffic?”; Equation Research 2010 READ MORE!

  • 5. IMPACT OF LATENCY ON DATA CENTERSAND CLOUD COMPUTING ENVIRONMENTS To maintain appropriate performance levels, data centers and cloud computing environments must add new servers to maintain appropriate levels of service, even if the existing servers have storage capacity for more users This results in low storage capacity utilization and an increase in CapEx and OpEx (namely maintenance, power and cooling costs), as well as an increase in physical space requirements READ MORE!

  • 6. ADAPTEC maxCache 3.0 SSD CACHINGSOLUTIONS – THIRD GENERATION Improving I/O performance while also increasing the available server capacity can increase the number of users per server and Cache lower the cost per user Available on select Adaptec RAID adapters, maxCache SSD caching uses Solid State Drives Solid State SATA/SAS (SSDs) and Hard Disk Drives Drives Hard Drives (HDDs) to alleviate the bottleneck that can occur between server processors and hard drives, delivering increased IOPS and reduced latency READ MORE!

  • 7. ADAPTEC maxCache SSD CACHINGSOLUTIONS Adaptec maxCache leverages its unique presence in the data path and utilizes an Adaptec-only algorithm that identifies frequently- accessed (“hot”) data, and optimizes "reads" and "writes" by copying this data into an SSD cache pool for faster retrieval of future requests. Because maxCache works at the controller level, these processes are completely transparent and do not require any changes to storage architectures, application software or operating systems.

  • 8. ADAPTEC maxCache 3.0 – READ ANDREDUNDANT WRITE BACK CACHING Introduced with 6GB/s Adaptec Series 7Q RAID adapters, maxCache 3.0 features additional optimizations to the algorithm that improve read caching By caching writes to a redundant SSD cache pool (either RAID1E or RAID5), maxCache 3.0 leverages the performance and latency capabilities of SSD technology for both read and write workloads Adaptec maxCache 3.0 supports up to 8 SSDs with up to 2TB of SSD cache READ MORE!

  • 9. ADAPTEC maxCache 3.0 OPTIMIZEDDISK UTILIZATION Also new to maxCache 3.0 is the inclusion of the Optimized Disk Utilization (ODU) feature, which allows the SSDs to be partitioned into both a cache pool and logical device The logical partition, unlike the cache pool, is exposed to the operating system and can be used to install an OS to it or store other data that requires fast, low-latency access READ MORE!

  • 11. LOWER TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP By accelerating IOPS and reducing latency, maxCache allows data center and cloud computing environments to host more users and perform more transactions per second using less server hardware The reduction in servers reduces CapEx for server hardware purchases The reduction in servers also reduces OpEx by lowering power, cooling, and maintenance *Using an estimated unit H/W cost of $15,000 and zero S/W license fees **Using system Power Estimator @ 800W per server, and a National DOE average of costs $0.11 per kWH READ MORE!
