“Proximal Data’s AutoCache is breakthrough technology for those businesses that need a cost-effective way to increase storage throughput and gain more powerful application performance,” said Mark Walker, UK Country Manager at Commtech. “AutoCache fits well into our portfolio of next-generation storage and Flash memory solutions. It is something that should be of great interest to our resellers.”
“Commtech will help extend our reach to storage resellers in the UK that are focused on providing companies with highly flexible and scalable solutions in their virtualized environments,” said Rory Bolt, CEO of Proximal Data. “Commtech offers proven market penetration along with a knowledgeable team providing superior sales and technical support.”
Proximal Data’s partnership with Commtech was established through its relationship with StoreAlliance, a storage industry sales and business development consultancy that establishes relationships with resellers who can help penetrate their respective markets.
AutoCache is the only hypervisor I/O intelligence solution designed specifically to increase VM density in virtualized servers and accelerate business application performance. With its I/O Intelligence, AutoCache automatically characterizes I/O in real time and dynamically places hot I/O into a local PCIe Flash card or solid-state disk (SSD), and then intelligently supplies priority data traffic to VMs. AutoCache is a read cache with write-through and write-around techniques. It dynamically adjusts to changing workloads and will not impact high-availability processes such as vMotion. This incredibly simple solution is also the most cost-effective way to take advantage of the performance benefits of enterprise Flash, converting a modest Flash investment into a huge value.
