RNA networks Announces RNAcache on Ethernet

RNA Delivers Memory Virtualization on Ethernet

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - November 17, 2009) - SC09 -- RNA networks, the leader in Memory Virtualization software, today announced RNAcache on Ethernet. RNAcache on Ethernet introduces a profound capability, Memory Virtualization to enterprise data center architectures. This capability directly impacts businesses that rely on this common IT architecture for success.

The transition of Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) from a captive resource to a shared, network resource has deep implications across the data center. Combining innovative Memory Virtualization with familiar, reliable Ethernet opens the enterprise data center to a new era of advancement. "Memory virtualization enables distributed, sharable memory by decoupling it from physical constraints. That means organizations can accelerate applications to improve the performance of their business," said Rachel Chalmers, research director, infrastructure management, The 451 Group.

"Memory virtualization improves data center performance and benefits both top and bottom line economics," said Clive Cook, CEO of RNA. "Introducing a shared memory pool using Ethernet into the data center results in higher utilization of existing resources, better performance of applications, less reliance on all forms of storage for active data sets and, uniquely, creates a shared, network memory element as a key architectural component in the data center."

RNAcache on Ethernet delivers 6X improvement in performance vs. without RNA on the same Ethernet network for data analytics, business intelligence, Internet / Intranet and customer relationship management applications. RNAcache is transparently deployed without changes to applications, operating systems, networks or storage.

At RNA's booth (#700) at SC09, the company will demonstrate how its flagship memory virtualization product, RNAcache, delivers a large shared memory pool to enhance application performance and resource utilization. This includes the ability to dynamically construct or provision a distributed, shared memory pool within a cluster based on application requirements.
