Nytro™ Application Acceleration Architecture
Intelligent Solid-state Storage Solutions for Acceleration Datacenter Applications
With Nytro™ Products, LSI delivers smarter, faster application acceleration solutions by combining SSDs with intelligent software that analyzes data hot spots to determine which data is best processed in Flash and which is best stored in HDDs, enabling you to select the right amount of flash for the price and performance you need. It’s fast, smart, and easy.

FAST. Up to 12x in database transactions improvement, Up to 10x latency reduction for SAN connected storage. Powered by the LSI SandForce flash storage processor.

SMART. Right-sized solutions provide a choice rather than one-size fits all. Intelligently use flash and hard drives together for to achieve the optimal price/performance. Seamless caching and acceleration software analyzes data hot spots.

EASY. LSI solid-state storage solutions just plain work. No tuning, no rewrites, no hand-placing data. Transparent and seamless application acceleration with minimal impact to existing IT infrastructure, and extensive OS support. A breadth of product portfolio so solutions can be cost-effectively tailored.

Nytro™ Product Family
The Nytro™ Product Family is the most comprehensive, trustworthy, and highest-performance portfolio of enterprise solid-state storage solutions for customers who seek to unlock unparalleled application acceleration and reduced TCO. Because LSI technologies are so widely deployed within the datacenter and undergo rigorous internal and external qualification testing, Nytro™ products deliver ease of implementation, seamless integration, extensive OS support, reliability and future-proof scalability. That’s the smarter way to faster.
