New hypervisor-based caching software being demonstrated at VMworld
in the Micron Booth #1635
AutoCache 2.0 supports resource sharing within VMware vCenter and vSphere environments, creates specific access rights for the AutoCache VMware vCenter plug-in, enables administrators to modify host level and VM cache settings, and collects data over time for performance analysis and bill-back.
AutoCache 2.0 additionally supports numerous enterprise and cloud service provider requirements by providing a caching solution for both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESXi hypervisors. AutoCache can be deployed with a wide variety of flash devices, supports pre-warming of the cache for vMotion to meet service level agreements, and is integrated with all vCenter functionality for single-screen management. A core tenet to AutoCache’s design is its ability to enable nondisruptive implementations and operation.
“As a cloud and virtualization infrastructure provider, we welcome AutoCache’s support for our specific service providers’ requirements, particularly the role-based administration with its ability to create specific access rights and modify cache settings using the AutoCache vCenter plug-in,” said
“We aim to meet the needs of all customers who are managing virtualized environments by developing capabilities that add flexibility and convenience as well as optimize I/O caching performance,” said
AutoCache 2.0 is being demonstrated in partnership with Micron in its booth, #1635, at VMworld this week. The demonstration will show AutoCache 2.0 software accelerating I/O performance by using a Micron p320h PCIe Flash card, and it will show specific new features that are designed to ease the life of a cloud service provider. The Micron Flash card’s performance and endurance in combination with AutoCache’s adaptive caching algorithms make it the ideal solution for broad adoption of server-side flash caching in virtualized environments.
