Attivio sustains 5X performance gain with Infinio Accelerator

Invests in storage capacity with money saved

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 30, 2014 – Infinio, the price/performance leader in storage acceleration for virtualized data centers, announced today that one of its earliest customers, Attivio, is enjoying significant and sustained storage performance improvements with Infinio. Attivio, a big data search and discovery company focused on making information meaningful, accessible, and actionable, was the first beta customer for Infinio Accelerator. Results have been impressive enough that Attivio has built Infinio into its new next-generation IT environment.

Infinio’s server-side caching software helps many organizations get more performance out of existing storage hardware, in some cases delaying upgrades. Attivio took a different approach. Rather than buying racks of SSDs to speed up the storage in its brand new data center, Attivio installed Infinio and invested the cost savings in additional storage capacity.

“Why spend a lot of money on an isolated shelf of SSDs when you can get that performance benefit across the whole environment for less?” said Sean Lutner, Director of IT Operations at Attivio. “Infinio lowered the cost of our overall storage system while improving its performance.”

Attivio has seen 88 percent of read requests offloaded from central storage and up to 93 percent bandwidth saved with Infinio. Response time has improved as much as 6X, with a sustained 5X performance improvement over several months.

Infinio is different from other server-side caching solutions because it is 100% software-only, creating a shared, deduplicated cache using a small amount of idle RAM from each ESXi host. Installation requires no reboots, and Infinio is operationally transparent. No new datastores need to be created, and no storage operations are disrupted.
