New Benchmark Results Show 2 Million Transactions per Minute at One-Fifth the Cost of All-Flash Arrays
San Francisco, CA, June 10, 2014 – Orange Silicon Valley, the wholly-owned US innovation subsidiary of telecommunications giant Orange, and CacheIO, the leading price/performance flash storage company, today announced the results of a benchmark test run on their combined solution, which achieves 2 million transactions per minute on CacheIO accelerated commodity servers and storage. Performance constrained database customers can now evaluate and deploy CacheIO flash cache to accelerate their database performance without replacing or disrupting their existing servers and storage.
Many enterprises are looking to increase the performance of their mission critical databases to accelerate their business processes. The emerging all-flash storage arrays require a complete replacement of existing disk arrays, incurring high capital and data migration costs, as well as lacking in mature storage management features that customers have depended on for years. Server-side flash does not scale to cache all active data, making its latency and throughput profile more similar to that of spinning disks than flash memory. CacheIO network cache scales to 23TB flash capacity per RU (Rack Unit) at one-fifth the cost of all-flash arrays, servicing all active data at sub millisecond latency while increasing disk array utilization from 30% to 80%. As a shared network resource, CacheIO flash cache allows service providers and enterprise customers to monetize performance by provisioning performance dynamically based on service level agreements.
“We are always looking for emerging technology that can accelerate database performance and help us increase disk utilization and also preserve existing legacy storage investments to serve the ever increasing need for capacity. CacheIO has demonstrated one of the top Transactions-Per-Minute benchmark results accelerating low cost iSCSI SATA storage. To a service provider like Orange, it has the important benefit of provisioning performance based on SLAs, allowing us to monetize performance as a utility” – said Jérome Laudouar, VP, IT Infrastructure Technologies & Engineering of Orange.
The benchmark test configuration at Orange Silicon Valley consists of five commodity servers running Oracle 12c Real Application Cluster software, CacheIO flash cache appliance, and a commodity iSCSI array with 24x 2TB SATA drives.

CacheIO develops a portfolio of all-flash storage systems including all-flash cache and all-flash array. Combining patent pending flash optimization software with commodity hardware, CacheIO has demonstrated unprecedented performance and cost per gigabyte for both IOPS-intensive applications (databases and virtual machines) and bandwidth-intensive applications (uncompressed 4K media production and big data analytics).
