Gear6 Selected as Finalist for Eighth Annual eWeek Excellence Awards
GEAR6, accelerating I/O for real time application performance, today announced it has been nominated as a finalist for the eighth annual eWeek Excellence Awards for its CACHEfx scalable caching appliance and Reflex 1.5 operating software, which delivers unmatched I/O delivery capabilities at extremely low latencies to speed data intensive applications.

Gear6 CACHEfx appliances enhance both traditional Network Attached Storage (NAS) deployments and clustered file systems while scaling seamlessly to support increasing amounts of bandwidth and up to terabytes of cache capacity. Serving requests from high-speed memory provides applications a massive throughput increase and real time access to data. Large files, data sets and entire databases are reliably cached to accelerate I/O performance 1050 times faster than traditional mechanical disk based solutions.

According to eWeek, eWeek editors culled through hundreds of entries to select the IT products and services that are best-suited to enterprises changingand increasingly demanding requirements.

Gear6s CACHEfx appliances are deployed across multiple industries and application environments to solve a variety of critical customer problems, including:

  • Boosting application performance due to slowdowns or brownouts of I/O contention
  • Increasing server utilization levels by delivering rapid I/O access
  • Eliminating inefficient and over-provisioned storage deployments
  • Radically simplifying management and maintenance by applying performance dynamically to any storage tier

Being nominated as a finalist for the eWeek Excellence Awards is a significant validation of the innovation were providing customers, said Gary Orenstein, vice president of marketing at Gear6. Organizations deploying data intensive applications want maximum performance that is both simple to manage and cost-effective, and thats exactly what were delivering.
