Lightening Fast I/O For Any Storage

Infinio Accelerator is a software-based server-side cache that provides high performance to any storage system in your VMware environment, including VSAN, SAN, VVOLs, NAS, DAS, and HCI. Infinio increases IOPS and decreases latency by caching a copy of the hottest data on server-side resources such as RAM and flash devices. Native inline deduplication ensures that your server-side resources are used as efficiently as possible, reducing the cost of performance. You can see results instantly following the non-disruptive, 15-minute installation that doesn’t require any downtime, data migration, or reboots.

Design Principles

1. The fastest storage performance comes from putting the hottest data in the server, close to applications.

As storage media has become increasingly faster, the network has become the new bottleneck.  Because Infinio serves I/O server-side, we can provide performance that is significantly better than relying on lengthy round-trips to and from even the highest performing all-flash array.

2. You need a “memory-first” architecture to realize the best storage performance.

RAM is orders of magnitude faster than flash and SSDs, but is price-prohibitive for most datasets.  Our solution to this problem is a content-based architecture, whose inline deduplication enables RAM to cache 5X-10X more data than its physical capacity.  If you need additional caching capacity, you can add a server-side flash tier built on PCIe flash, SSDs, or NVMe devices.

3. Delivering storage performance should be 100% headache-free. 

Our software enables you to use server-side RAM and flash transparently in your storage environment, supporting native storage features like snapshots and clones, as well as VMware integrations like VAAI and DRS. When you install Infinio, the software begins to provide value immediately after a non-disruptive, no reboot, 15 minute installation.
