infinite io Introduces Metadata Accelerator, Extends Life of NAS Systems
AUSTIN, TX: infinite io, a provider of network-based storage controller, has introduced a Network-based Metadata Accelerator, NSC-055s that delivers a cost-effective, easy-to-install and easy-to-integrate solution for IT managers to enhance the metadata performance of existing Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems.
NAS is a kind of file storage tool that offers local area network nodes with file-based shared storage through a standard Ethernet connection. With the launch of the new Metadata Accelerator, businesses are now able to evidently accelerate their existing appliances and expand the life of NAS systems. Based on a layer-7 transparent proxy, or bump-on-a-wire, the NSC-055s is hidden to installed applications, servers, and clients. Also, while appearing as the main storage, it uses deep-packet assessment to control and react to metadata activity.
“With 20 microsecond response times, the NSC-055s serves metadata request over 25 times faster than a typical all-flash NAS systems,” mentions Mark Cree, CEO, infinite io.
With a standard web browser using the embedded infiniview software, the new Metadata Accelerator enables IT managers to view real-time analytics on which metadata operations are being off-loaded to the NSC-055s across all NAS systems. The NSC-055s supports out-of-band or passive in-line mode of installation and simultaneously allows IT administrators to observe metadata analytics.
According to infinite io, the new solution can provide up to 1,500,000 metadata requests per second with an average latency of twenty microseconds. Moreover, it accumulates all file metadata and can enhance the performance of even flash-based NAS systems.
