FlashSoft software enables a solid-state device (SSD) to function as a cache for frequently accessed data in a server. The software is installed as a kernel module within the Linux OS. By caching hot data on a high-speed SSD installed on the server, access times are reduced, and applications spend less time waiting for data.
FlashSoft for Linux accelerates enterprise applications such as MySQL® and Oracle® databases and reduces the I/O burden on backend storage. Lower latency I/O improves throughput and response time for business critical OLTP applications, increasing workload and reducing process time for OLAP operations.
