Accelerate Read-Intensive Applications

Hyperscale data centers require cost-effective scaling to thousands of servers to meet the heavy compute and storage demands of Web 2.0, cloud computing and big data analytics which search data for content or comb data for trends–both of which are read-intensive. The Nytro XP6200 flash accelerator cards are designed to reduce latency and deliver high performance the ability to scale to further enhance application performance.

Flash Cards to Reduce Power and Cooling Costs

Delivering leading endurance and reliability using low-cost flash and designed to optimize low power and thermal characteristics, the Nytro XP6200 series requires up to 30 percent less power than similar cards using MLC flash technology. Unlike other cards with flash memory, this efficient design does not require heat sinks to control temperature. The lower power and cooling translates into lower OpEx.

Gold Standard in PCI-based Device Drivers, Seamless Deployment

The Nytro XP6200 not only addresses the challenges of performance and space, but does so seamlessly with minimal administrator intervention or fine-tuning. 

  • PCI card transparency to applications, file systems, operating systems, and field-hardened device drivers. 
  • Sophisticated algorithms handle complex flash management tasks like garbage collection and wear-leveling. 

Leveraging these advanced features, the PCIe flash-based acceleration card delivers the performance and endurance needed for critical business applications. 

 

Data Center

Turn Data into Meaningful Information Quickly

Today’s data warehouse has evolved from being considered as a secondary archiving project to a primary one which organizations depend on for their daily operations. In data warehouse deployments, low latency is critical. Environments such as these can experience substantial performance benefits with Nytro. As a component of tested reference architectures, such as Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Fast Track, Nytro can be a part of a turn-key deployment for optimized performance.
