QLogic Unveils FabricCache: Industry's First Caching SAN Adapter

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., March 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QLogic (Nasdaq:QLGC) furthers its leadership position in high-performance data center connectivity, revolutionizing enterprise application performance with the release of the QLogic® FabricCacheâ„¢ 10000 Series adapter. The first product based on the company's breakthrough Mt. Rainier technology, FabricCache combines QLogic's market-leading Fibre Channel adapter, intelligent caching and I/O management with connectivity to a server-based PCIe ® flash card. FabricCache is exceptionally simple to deploy and manage and transforms single-server, captive cache into a shared, performance-enhancing resource for a wide range of enterprise applications that rely on SAN storage.

Shared cache unleashes performance for clustered and virtualized applications in the enterprise

Clustered and highly virtualized servers continue to expand their footprint in the data center, generating large numbers of highly randomized IOPs and producing some of the most performance-challenged environments in the enterprise. FabricCache unleashes the power of server-based caching and defines a new solution category for enterprise application acceleration, transparently pooling individual server cache across multiple, physical servers. All servers equipped with FabricCache adapters access, share and utilize the combined cache of all FabricCache adapters in a cluster. This approach delivers new levels of scalable performance for the most demanding mission-critical applications in the data center, dramatically lowering latency and increasing throughput for clustered and virtualized applications, including database and enterprise collaboration.

FabricCache adapters enable hypervisor-transparent caching of SAN storage in highly virtualized, clustered environments. During live virtual machine (VM) migration between physical servers, FabricCache ensures the shared cache stays warm, keeping performance high and supporting critical features such as automated VM and workload balancing across clustered servers. Since only one active copy of cache exists for any SAN LUN, FabricCache adapters guarantee cache coherence and maximize utilization of server-based flash capacity. FabricCache also ensures all cached data is synchronized with SAN storage, maintaining existing data protection and compliance policies.
