      Samsung AutoCache™

      A high-efficiency caching solution that eliminates I/O bottlenecks in physical and virtual servers

      Increase virtual machine (VM) density and efficiency by removing system clogs

      AutoCache is an I/O caching solution designed to increase virtual machine (VM) density and accelerate business-critical applications in servers by eliminating bottlenecks. I/O bottlenecks are eradicated by transparently moving copies of frequently accessed data to SSDs for quicker access. AutoCache first writes data to the SSDs and then copies it to disk drives, enabling the system to handle bursts of high-write requests at SSD speeds instead of slow disk speeds. The technology requires no guest OS agents and supports virtually all types of SSDs, including NVMe, SATA and SAS SSDs.
      AutoCache feature
      Gain greater density, performance and efficiency

      AutoCache greatly increases virtual machine (VM) density and application performance, boosting productivity while eliminating the need for additional equipment. And it's straight forward to install and operate, reducing IT administration costs and providing seamless integration. Features of AutoCache include:

      • Up to 2 to 3x greater virtual machine (VM) density per server
      • Up to 3 to 4x increase in application performance
      • Reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO)
      • Role-based administration
      • Incredibly easy to deploy and operate with no impact on IT infrastructure

      2.1.1 for VMware
      AutoCache™ is the only I/O caching solution designed specifically to increase VM density and accelerate business critical applications in virtualized servers. This solution is incredibly easy to deploy and maintain, by virtue of being totally transparent to system resources and fully integrated with native management infrastructure for the hypervisor.
