PERFORMANCE

QLOGIC FABRICCACHE

KEY FEATURES

Oracle RAC & Qlogic FabricCache adapters deliver increased database I/O performance

Reduce peak response times up to 82% & average response times by 57%

Server-side caching reduces storage IOPS up to 87% and increases server workload performance

FabricCache adapters transparently integrate into existing SAN infrastructures

FabricCache adapters minimize server-side changes, taking advantage of Qlogic industry standard HBA drivers

QLogic’s FabricCache 10000 Series Host Bus Adapters utilize a flashbased server-side cache, to optimize I/O between the server and storage. FabricCache provides significant benefits to I/O-intensive applications such as Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC). The QLE10000 will accelerate your RAC database infrastructure, providing greater utilization, better I/O throughput and reliability. The combination of Oracle RAC and FabricCache provides both clustered database cache and on-server storage cache, resulting in a substantial increase in data access performance, while providing a reduction in storage resource utilization.

What is Oracle Real Application Clusters?

Oracle Real Application Clusters supports the transparent deployment of a single database across pools of servers, providing fault tolerance from hardware failures or planned outages. Oracle RAC provides Oracle’s highest level of capability in terms of availability, scalability, and low-cost computing.

What are QLogic FabricCache Adapters?

The QLogic 10000 Series FabricCache 8Gb Fibre Channel Adapter is a ground-breaking enterprise-ready solution that combines QLogic's marketleading Fibre Channel adapter, intelligent caching and I/O management with connectivity to a server-based PCIe flash card to dramatically increase application performance. The QLogic FabricCache Adapter caches SAN data to accelerate server I/O access, and provides shared caching for clustered, virtualized, and distributed workloads across the data center.
