VeloBit HyperCache Accelerates Application Performance by 20x at Masergy Communications

SSD Caching Software Reduces Data Processing Time From 2 Minutes to 6 Seconds, Enabling Higher Service Levels Without Expanding the IT Infrastructure

LINCOLN, MA--(Marketwire - Jun 12, 2012) - VeloBit, a provider of high-performance SSD caching software, today announced that its VeloBit HyperCache has helped Masergy Communications, a global network services provider, to accelerate the company's network performance analysis application by 20x without changing its existing IT infrastructure.

The engineering team at Massergy Communications evaluated multiple options to scale the company's network management application to keep up with the growth of the business. VeloBit provided the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective means to boost performance. VeloBit HyperCache combines multiple performance-enhancing technologies in one easy-to-deploy software solution which allowed Massergy to accelerate their application without modifying the application or related hardware.

VeloBit combined RAM caching, SSD caching, and compression in one solution that uses available hardware resources more efficiently. VeloBit compressed cached data by 10x, which increased the effective cache size. As a result more data could be served from cache, which increased application performance and lowered the I/O load to primary storage. Sample application processing times were reduced from 2 minutes to 6 seconds, a 20 times increase in application performance.

"We evaluated multiple options to accelerate our application and VeloBit proved superior to all alternatives," said Kirby Files, Software Architect at Masergy Communications. VeloBit's plug & play software solution did not require us to make any changes to our application or hardware, saving us months of development effort. VeloBit is an ideal solution for anyone with I/O intensive applications."

"IT managers and software developers have enough challenges. Worrying about how to maximize the performance of their IT infrastructure investments should not be one of them. Our products solve the challenges of customers who seek top performance using the latest technology, as well as customers who seek cost-efficient ways to scale the performance of their existing IT systems," said Duncan McCallum, CEO and co-founder of VeloBit. "At VeloBit, we are committed to helping our customers maximize their IT investments by delivering multiple performance-enhancing technologies in one easy-to-deploy solution."
