Adaptec maxCache Plus– A Caching and Tiering Solution

Adaptec by PMC's maxCache Plus solution introduces a revolutionary new tiering software for direct-attach-storage data management. Our new tiering solution is a secured (non-opened source) filter driver. The architecture establishes a presence in the management layer of the host server and can manage any underlying hardware. The solution supports any/all block-level storage devices and structures it as storage space, with enhanced granularity of fast/faster/fastest media recognition.

The Series 8 "Q" products are equipped with maxCache Plus, supporting both caching and tiering functionality. This technology allows IT managers, system integrators, and ISV's to garner the fastest performance and best overall value from their storage assets. It provides flexibility to configure any & all storage devices in server environments and allows for the fastest media to be used as storage instead of just cache, maximizing the use of the newest 12Gb/s drives.
