Convey’s Memcached Appliance
One of the higher volume areas where the HC architecture provides substantial acceleration is the memcached application. Memcached is an open source, high-performance, distributed memory caching system used by eighty-five percent of top web sites (such as Wikipedia, Flickr, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook), approximately fifty percent of the top 5,000 sites, numerous public/private cloud providers, and datacenters worldwide.
Today’s ever-increasing network traffic and rapidly growing datasets are presenting throughput and scalability challenges for the memcached technology. The Wolverine-based memcached appliance solves these problems by accelerating performance-critical portions of the memcached algorithms, dramatically increasing throughput and reducing latency. Wolverine provides five to ten times the throughput of a contemporary multi-core server while maintaining sub-millisecond response time.
Convey will continue to offer their recently announced Convey Memcached appliance. This server provides an order of magnitude higher throughput than commodity servers while maintaining sub-millisecond response time. Additionally, the Convey Memcached server dramatically reduces cost of ownership by slashing power, cooling, and maintenance costs.
