Gear6 Offers Entry-Level Centralized Storage Caching Appliance

Gear6, a start-up based in Mountain View, California, expanded its storage-caching product line with the introduction of its CACHEfx G100 scalable caching appliance. The new model delivers the same feature set and capabilities as the full CACHEfx product line in a more compact and lower cost configuration.

The new CACHEfx G100 delivers 125,000 I/O operations per second and throughput of 800 MB per second, and features the same Reflex OS that scales across the entire Gear6 product line. The system comes equipped with an initial cache capacity of 128 GB consuming a scant 1,815 watts of power. The appliance preserves valuable data center "real estate", requiring only 11U of rack space.

The G100 is available immediately at a list price of $149,000.
