What is Software Defined Memory?

Software Defined Memory (SDM) is a new architecture converging both storage and memory. SDM provides a cost-effective and flexible approach to making memory more readily available to your applications. The architecture allows the application to access memory as if it were storage.

Use RapidDisk to enhance the performance of your applications and extend the life of traditional NAND Flash or magnetic disk drives. Avoid or limit the pitfalls of Flash: the Write Cliff and Read disturb corruption / data loss.




Database and Meta Data

Cache file system meta-data, applications and/or database contents. RapidDisk is perfect for small I/O or read heavy environments.




Physical and Virtual Machines

Run RapidDisk in both a Hypervisor or on physical hardware. Increase the speed of commonly accessed operating system or other storage data.




Raw and File System Data

Accelerate local and remote disk drives. Use Direct Attached Storage (DAS) or volumes across a Storage Area Network (SAN). RapidDisk is storage topology agnostic.



The Five Key Factors…



Dynamically grow / reduce RapidDisk’s footprint on one or more servers, as needed. You can easily deploy it in-line with your current data center configurations.



Achieve memory performance for RAM drive access or significantly accelerate the read performance of slower storage devices. Ensure that your critical data quickly reaches client hands and reduce access latency times.



Enable RapidDisk in a cluster-wide and highly available deployment, capable of sustaining server failures. Fault tolerance reduces down time and in turn reduces operating costs.



Dynamically enable / disable block level encryption on a per drive basis. Ensure that your data is safe from local or remote tampering.



Deploy RapidDisk on as many servers or virtual machines needed at no initial cost. No special hardware is required. Limit access to more power hungry media and resulting in reduced power consumption / cooling costs.
