SanDisk Unveils Next-Gen FlashSoft Software for Microsoft Hyper-V and Microsoft Windows Server

The company’s latest solution boasts unprecedented I/O acceleration to virtual environments.

SanDisk Corporation, a developer of flash storage solutions, has unveiled the next generation of FlashSoft software for Microsoft Windows Server and Microsoft Hyper-V. This newest version of its FlashSoft server-side, solid state caching software offers significant application performance acceleration gains, up to three to five times, especially in transactional and virtualized environments which often experience high I/O latency.

“We recognize that efficient access to data for key applications is an essential requirement for our enterprise customers. The new version of FlashSoft software now offers customers even better application acceleration, regardless of the environment or scale,”†says Ravi Swaminathan, vice president and general manager, Systems and Software Solutions, SanDisk.

FlashSoft software, now updated for Microsoft Windows Server, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Linux operating systems, ensures that the most frequently accessed data (hot data) is serviced by server-side flash rather than slower back-end storage. This aims to alleviate storage performance bottlenecks and accelerates applications by reducing response time, without mandating a large investment in hardware.

Key features of the latest FlashSoft update include:

  • Application Acceleration: Leveraging FlashSoft, the company states that enterprises can accelerate application performance by a 4.38 times increase in transactions per second.
  • Policy-based Caching: The new file-level policy-based caching technology improves caching efficiency by allowing administrators to exclude specific files from the cache.
  • SAN Relief and Workload Density: FlashSoft is designed to reduce traffic on storage networks and storage systems (“SAN relief”). Moreover, it also enables more workloads on accelerated hosts (increased workload density per host server).

FlashSoft is compatible with any enterprise flash device, including PCIe, NVMe, SAS, or SATA interfaces. The software runs in any standard x86-based server, working with both storage area network (SAN) and Direct Attached Storage (DAS) configurations.
