Proximal Data Announces Availability of AutoCache for Microsoft Hyper-V

SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--

Proximal Data, the leading provider of hypervisor I/O intelligence software solutions, today announced the general availability of AutoCache for Microsoft (News - Alert)® Hyper-V hypervisor. AutoCache is a hypervisor-based caching solution with I/O intelligence that removes I/O bottlenecks and increases virtual machine (VM) density by up to three times to attain maximum performance for business-critical applications. AutoCache also supports VMware ESXi hypervisors. Both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESXi customers can take advantage of a free trial of AutoCache.

AutoCache supports Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 and has received Microsoft WHQL certification. AutoCache also integrates with Microsoft Hyper-V System Center Virtual Machine Manager to provide single screen unfied management.

"To meet the needs of our customers with virtualized environments, we are driven to expand our support for all hypervisor technologies," said Rory Bolt, CEO of Proximal Data. "By providing our caching solution for both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESXi hypervisors, we are supporting numerous enterprise and cloud service provider requirements, as well as delivering a fast, efficient caching solution that accelerates the performance of critical business applications."

AutoCache is the only patented hypervisor solution designed specifically to increase VM density in virtualized servers and accelerate business application performance. With its I/O Intelligence, AutoCache automatically characterizes I/O in real time and dynamically places hot I/O into a local PCIe flash card or solid-state disk (SSD), then intelligently supplies priority data traffic to VMs. AutoCache dynamically adjusts to changing workloads and will not impact high-availability processes. This incredibly simple solution is also the most cost-effective way to take advantage of the performance benefits of enterprise flash, converting a modest flash investment into a huge value.

Availability and Pricing

AutoCache for Microsoft Hyper-V is available now from Proximal Data resellers. US Pricing starts at $1000 per host for Flash caches less than 500GB.
