Run your Oracle database up to 10x faster with the GridIron TurboCharger and turn your Oracle Data Warehouse and Oracle OLTP-based applications into the fastest applications your users have ever seen!
GridIron Systems’ TurboCharger boosts Oracle database performance by providing up to 1000x faster access to the data blocks containing database tables and indexes.
The TurboCharger is deployed between the server and storage, where it continuously profiles the data access behavior of applications and creates a heuristics-driven map of the data space. I/O requests from the database server are fulfilled instantaneously based on the real-time data map, dramatically improving database performance.
The GridIron TurboCharger delivers incredible cost savings by allowing you to fully leverage your current storage, servers, databases, applications, processes, and personnel — unlike alternatives that are expensive, power-hungry, and often require forklift upgrades. The TurboCharger decouples database performance from the storage layout of Oracle tablespaces, thus lowering ongoing tuning costs.
With the GridIron TurboCharger, your supercomputer-class compute hosts will no longer spend the majority of their time in an I/O wait state — 1000x faster I/O access translates to up to 10x application runtime acceleration.
If your job involves running chip simulations, immersing yourself in geoscience tools for interpretation and visualization, or simply building large software executables, data access is the main component of your performance problem. With the TurboCharger your performance problem is solved.
The GridIron TurboCharger doesn’t require any changes to your architecture, application configurations, or operational processes. With the TurboCharger you won’t spend any time moving tables, LUNs, files, etc. Eliminate the guesswork, wasted time, and futile attempts to manually place files into optimized locations among tiered-storage alternatives.
Instead, let the GridIron TurboCharger automatically and selectively discover and anticipate all your urgently needed data and feed it to your applications without waiting on any rotational disk latency.
The TurboCharger accelerates a variety of file server environments including NetApp V-Series, IBM N Series, EMC Celerra, Open Source File Server, GPFS, pNFS, Lustre, Ehcache, and GFS/IBRIX/PolyServe Cluster File Systems.
The GridIron TurboCharger can be deployed in hours and is simple to maintain. Simply put the TurboCharger on a Fibre Channel connection between your file server and its storage, and watch the TurboCharger as it trains itself on your specific hardware and software, getting faster and faster with each passing hour.
The TurboCharger works with any file server that uses Fibre Channel storage on the backend. Experience better performance for your NAS clients regardless of protocol because NFS, CIFS, HTTP, and even iSCSI will be accelerated when the filer’s back-end Fibre Channel storage has been speeded up by GridIron.
The GridIron TurboCharger is built with scalability in mind. Whether you are concerned about capacity or I/O throughput, the TurboCharger has you covered. The TurboCharger can handle file servers up to 160 terabytes. If you need more capacity, simply add a GridIron BoostPack.
Is I/O performance limiting your growth? The smallest TurboCharger supports 100,000+ IOPS. Multiple TurboChargers will scale to 1 million IOPS and beyond.
Safe to Deploy
The GridIron TurboCharger is safe to deploy.
The TurboCharger only accelerates read I/Os; it “passes through” all write I/Os and the associated status commands. You also have granular control — you can choose to accelerate read I/Os from specific servers, storage, or LUNs. Or you can turn on acceleration for all I/Os going through the TurboCharger. You can even get started by accelerating just one of your LUNs and then add more LUNs as you get comfortable with the TurboCharger’s capabilities.
A pair of TurboChargers can be deployed in an active-active high availability configuration.
Furthermore, all components and paths in the TurboCharger have built-in Error-Correcting Code (ECC) circuitry for testing the accuracy of data as it passes through the appliance.
If you are considering high-performance file server solutions, server-based SSD storage, or specialized SSD arrays to enhance I/O performance, the GridIron TurboCharger should be at the top of your list.
