Stocks in this article: STEC

SANTA ANA, Calif., May 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- sTec, Inc. (NASDAQ: STEC), a leading global provider of solid-state storage solutions, today announced sTec ® EnhanceIO™ Profiler, the only comprehensive cache performance profiler available for free and unlimited use. Profiler empowers IT managers by identifying the optimal caching strategy for specific data center workloads, boosting performance, and maximizing existing solid-state or rotating-disk storage hardware investments. EnhanceIO Profiler's free download is available today at .

"Profiler allowed us to identify the actual performance gains we would achieve by deploying caching by simply running the software in our existing environment," said Nicholas Lemberger, systems administrator at Lakefield, a telecommunications company based in Wisconsin. "We were able to realize the cost and performance benefits of caching without the need to re-architect our site."

As a result of the recent data explosion, modern data centers must use aggressive storage optimization strategies to keep up with data demands. IT managers are under constant pressure to ensure that the increasing data load is stored efficiently for faster access, while keeping budgets in check. EnhanceIO Profiler provides the needed guidance on the deployment strategy, addressing workload data center challenges.

"Countless IT administrators are looking to reap the benefits of solid-state drives without taking on the cost of completely replacing their current storage systems," said Sunil Daryanani, director of product management, sTec. "By offering EnhanceIO Profiler for free and unlimited use, sTec enables IT managers to clearly see where caching would boost performance, then configure their data centers for maximum return on investment."

Profiler saves hours of administrative trial and error by recommending the optimal block size, and the capacity and type of solid-state drives (SSDs) to be used for maximum performance gain. With a non-disruptive installation and configuration, and an easy-to-use dashboard with detailed yet simple reporting, IT managers can be up and running in a matter of minutes.
