Dataram Doubles Cache Capacity of High-Availability SAN Appliance

April 6, 2011
XcelaSAN caches a wider range of applications for improved productivity

Princeton, NJ, April 6, 2011 Dataram Corporation [NASDAQ: DRAM], a worldwide leader in the manufacture of high-quality computer memory, storage products, software and services, today announced that its advanced SAN caching appliance, the Dataram XcelaSAN®, is now available with double the cache memory per high-availability appliance. Customers can now accelerate more applications and drive higher productivity in their midrange Fibre Channel SAN environments.

XcelaSAN is the only midrange SAN acceleration appliance that delivers up to 30 times I/O performance and accelerates both reads and writes with a high-availability architecture. Unlike most solid state storage solutions, XcelaSAN dynamically caches high I/O activity application data when it is needed, to support multiple applications many times larger than the cache itself.

"With the new capacity upgrade, the XcelaSAN storage optimization appliance allows customers to dramatically accelerate more applications with a cost-effective, easy to install storage appliance," said Jason Caulkins, Chief Technologist, Dataram. "The added cache capacity allows customers to add cache tiering to a wider range of applications in addition to their mission critical applications, resulting in improved performance across their entire business."

The XcelaSAN can be deployed in a mirrored pair with high-availability to dynamically improve application performance with no changes to application or system processes. Customers experience significantly improved productivity and reduced processing time with more efficient resource utilization and a substantial reduction in the total cost of computing.

The XcelaSAN Model 100 with 256GB of cache memory can be ordered today for delivery in mid-May. Interested parties can call 1.800.DATARAM or email to purchase directly from the company. The appliance offers easy upgradability with no additional licensing or software required.
