Independent Benchmarks Show VeloBit HyperCache to Be the Fastest and Easiest to Use SSD Cache in Industry

430% Faster Than Competitive Solutions, 800% Performance Increase in Linux Environments and 400% Performance Increase in VMware Environments

LINCOLN, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 11, 2012) - VeloBit, a provider of high-performance SSD caching software, today announced that performance benchmarks conducted by Demartek, an independent 3rd party, have determined VeloBit HyperCache to be the industry's fastest and easiest to use SSD caching software.

Demartek evaluated both VeloBit HyperCache and a competing software solution from FlashSoft (SanDisk) in simulated enterprise environments. The evaluation, commissioned by VeloBit, included multiple tests on Linux and VMware systems using both high-end PCIE and commodity SATA SSDs. The tests measured performance using a range of standard industry benchmarks.

VeloBit HyperCache delivered the highest performance of any host-based SSD caching solution that Demartek has ever tested. Additionally, VeloBit increased performance to such a degree that VeloBit's software, paired with commodity SATA SSD, outperformed competing caching software paired with much more expensive PCIE-based SSD.

Highlights include:

  • Highest performance of all SSD caching solutions that Demartek has tested
  • 430% higher performance than FlashSoft (Sandisk), a competing SSD caching software solution
  • 800% performance increase vs. disk in tests running TPCC in Linux environment (TPCC data are incompressible)
  • 400% increase vs. disk in TPCC performance in VMware environment
  • 60x increase vs. disk in benchmarks utilizing compressible data
  • 83% reduction in cost/IOPS vs. disk
  • Easier to install and operate than other SSD caching solutions

"The performance of VeloBit HyperCache, especially in the native Linux environment, is the highest that we have seen for host-based SSD caching, achieving an 800% performance improvement in TpmC results in the native Linux environment and a 60x performance improvement in test with highly compressible data," said Dennis Martin, CEO of Demartek. "In our tests, VeloBit HyperCache also outperformed the competitive host-based SSD caching solution from FlashSoft. We recommend that enterprises obtain the trial version and evaluate it in their environments."

"The benchmarks conducted by Demartek confirm what our customers already know -- VeloBit HyperCache rises above the competition," said Duncan McCallum, co-founder and CEO of VeloBit. "VeloBit HyperCache delivers the world's best performance in a hardware neutral solution that can be used with any SSD. This enables customers to use VeloBit with high-end PCIE SSDs to achieve best-in-class performance, or with less expensive SATA SSDs to achieve high-end performance in a more cost-effective solution. Our world-class engineering team has combined significant advances in caching & compression into one simple software solution that deploys in 60 seconds with no changes to applications or storage."
