What is a SAN Accelerator?











The SANaccelerator is a high performance storage device made up of solid state memory that is 200 times faster than a disk drive. The SANaccelerator connects to one or more Fibre Channel SANs (1Gbps or 2Gbps) and services up to 64 simultaneous application servers located in the fabric. Multiple servers can also gain shared access to data in support of High Availability Cluster computing. See the Flash presentation for a more in-depth visual.

The SANaccelerator delivers gigantic performance improvements in applications where frequent access to a relatively small number of "hot files" occurs. In database environments, for example, frequent updates to transaction logs, indices, and temporary tables account for up to 50% of all I/O activity but constitute less than 5% of total data storage space. Isolating these hot file types for each server in the SAN onto the SANaccelerator, dramatically supercharges performance of all the application servers in the SAN no matter how small or large the application.
