Improve Application Performance

Improve Application Performance with Intel® Cache Acceleration Software (Intel® CAS)

Today’s data centers are held back by storage I/O that cannot keep up with ever-increasing demand, preventing systems from reaching their full performance potential. Traditional solutions, such as increasing storage, servers, or memory, add huge expense and complexity.

Intel® Cache Acceleration Software (Intel® CAS), combined with high-performance Solid State Drives (SSDs), increases data center performance via intelligent caching rather than extreme spending. Intel® CAS interoperates with server memory to create a multilevel cache that optimizes the use of system memory and automatically determines the best cache level for active data, allowing applications to perform even faster than running fully on flash/SSDs.1

Eliminate I/O Latency with an SSD Bundle

Save time and money with confidence: Purchasing an Intel® SSD with Intel® CAS bundle saves on cost (discounted vs when sold separately) and eases software management compliance and overhead. Intel® CAS software is licensed per SSD and is included with the Intel® SSD at time of purchase with one-year of included support. The bundles of Intel® SSDs with Intel® CAS are solutions designed to meet the most challenging data center workloads and undergo a full set of tests for each software release.
