FORSA pools physical server memory and enables its use as a high-performance storage media for low-latency and I/O intensive applications. FORSA installs in minutes and can be managed via an intuitive GUI and RESTful APIs.
FORSA performs best with “write-heavy” or “transactional-heavy” workloads, landing “new” I/O or data in memory media (DRAM or Optane) faster than any other solution. FORSA has been tested and outperforms NetApp’s MAX Data and Linux native Optane drivers.
Unlike other In-Memory Storage solutions, FORSA does not require users to adopt a new proprietary file-system (ie: no MAXFS for MAX Data or DMO for MemVerge). FORSA developed its own unique software drivers for memory management and data placement and presents a POSIX-compliant block interface, allowing it to work with any existing file system or application without the need for file system or application modifications.
FORSA can use either DRAM or PMem to provision In-Memory Storage. FORSA developed its own I/O and memory management driver that can be used on both AMD and Intel platforms and works with systems that only have DRAM as well as systems that are configured with Intel Optane PMem.
Application-consistent memory state capture of the entire system in DRAM or persistent memory to local SSDs for data protection, backup, and recovery.
FORSA Cloud Compute (FC2) is the only cloud instance that enables storage via Optane in App Direct mode natively as part of its Infrastructure as a Service.
FORSA dramatically improves the performance of ANY I/O-intensive application without modification. Some industry-leading applications include:
