Introducing HP SmartCache for HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers


HP SmartCache is the cost-effective, scalable, high-performance solution for accelerating data access for multi-terabyte data sets for either DAS or SAN environments. HP SmartCache is a controller-based read caching solution in a DAS environment that caches the most frequently accessed data ("hot" data) onto lower latency SSDs to dynamically accelerate application workloads.


Key Benefits:

  • Accelerates performance of applications up to 4 times by caching “hot” data on SSDs*
  • Simplifies deployment by seamlessly integrating into your data center without the need for any application or operating system changes
  • Enables unified management through the HP Array Configuration Utility (ACU) management tool
  • Improves operational efficiency by utilizing your existing ProLiant Gen8 server technology, yielding lower TCO

HP SmartCache is supported on HP ProLiant Gen8 servers with one of the following controllers: P420i, P420, P421, P822 and P721m. HP SmartCache is an included feature on the P822 and P721m/2G FBWC. The HP SmartCache architecture is flexible and supports any HP ProLiant Gen8 supported HDD for bulk storage and any HP ProLiant Gen8 supported SSD as an accelerator.
