Schooner Appliance for Memcached - Server - Product Details
Memcached is an open-source client/server standard used to accelerate dynamic Web applications by caching data to reduce database load. However, traditional Memcached throughput is limited by memory capacity, multi-core scalability, and network bandwidth, and is a single point of failure. Web services are becoming increasingly dependent on Memcached for performance and availability of mission-critical applications.The Schooner Appliance for Memcached leverages Intel processors, enterprise-class flash memory, and high-performance networking to achieve significantly higher throughput, capacity and availability. The result is up to 8x caching capacity improvement over traditional Memcached servers and a 90% reduction in downtime. Schooner appliances can replace ordinary servers at a ratio of up to 8:1, providing both immediate and ongoing cost savings. This consolidation drives up to a 60% reduction in overall TCO compared to traditional servers. The Schooner Appliance for Memcached can reduce unacceptable response times due to a significant increase in the required database access rate, which can consequently lead to cascading failures. The Schooner Appliance for Memcached provides a complete set of high-availability features to enable a consistent user experience through both planned and unplanned outages.
