VeloBit Releases HyperCache SSD Caching Software for Windows and Hyper-V



LINCOLN, MA–(Marketwire – Sep 19, 2012) – VeloBit, a provider of high-performance SSD caching software, today announced the immediate general availability of VeloBit HyperCache for Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Hyper-V. The VeloBit HyperCache software enables IT managers to increase Microsoft SQL Server transactions-per-second by 700% while cutting average response by over 80%. When deployed on a Microsoft Hyper-V server, VeloBit multiplies the maximum number of supported virtual machines without requiring expensive hardware upgrades. VeloBit HyperCache is available as a free download on VeloBit.com/free-trial.

VeloBit HyperCache is software that installs on enterprise servers in 60 seconds. It transparently caches data on Solid State Disks (SSDs) resulting in speedup of applications, virtual machines, operating systems, and storage without changes to infrastructure or applications. VeloBit now offers both the broadest operating system support and the best performance and price-performance of any vendor in industry. VeloBit now accelerates the following operating systems and hypervisors: Windows, Hyper-V, VMware, Linux, Citrix XenServer, Xen, KVM, and OpenVZ. An independent performance evaluation performed by Demartek demonstrated that VeloBit HyperCache increased SQL performance by 800% while reducing cost by 60%.

“VeloBit has allowed us to increase both our Hyper-V virtualization density and performance, with only low cost commodity SSDs and their HyperCache software,” said Lance Ishimoto, Director of IT at Mirixa Corporation. ”We’ve been able to expand our environment without purchasing additional expensive SAN storage and in many cases, have just used local disk due to the IOPS gains we’ve achieved.”

“VeloBit is amazingly simple,” said Milan Heidrich, CEO of COMA Zálohovací Systémy, a partner of VeloBit. “We compared VeloBit to different products on the market and found it was the right choice because it offered the best performance for the price. Both COMA and our customers are excited about the benefits offered by VeloBit’s SSD acceleration for Windows.”

“Strong customer demand for our software pulled VeloBit to support every major operating system and hypervisor,” said Duncan McCallum, co-founder and CEO of VeloBit. “It is a testament to our great engineering team and the quality of our code that we are able to port technology across platforms so quickly.”
