infinite io recently announced the NSC-055s, a Network-based Metadata Accelerator. The NSC-055s adds a controller dedicated to the acceleration of metadata requests to infinite io’s award-winning Network-based Storage Controller product line. With the NSC-055s, enterprises will be able to transparently accelerate existing applications and extend the life of NAS systems.
infinite io makes metadata acceleration totally transparent
The NSC-055s installs transparently in front of existing storage and seamlessly intercepts and responds to metadata requests without forcing applications to be re-provisioned or storage to be virtualized.
The NSC-055s can serve up to 1,500,000 metadata requests per second with an average latency of 20 microseconds. Unlike a cache, it collects all file metadata and is always hot.
