Mushkin, a leading supplier of different computer parts and accessories, has introduced a new series of solid-state drives designed for caching of frequently used data from hard disk drives, thus providing SSD-class performance without sacrificing HDD capacities. The addition of a Mushkin Catalyst Cache SSD will accelerate boot times, application launches, and general system performance

The Mushkin Catalyst Cache SSD is available in 50GB and 100GB capacities and works with any Serial ATA interface. The SSDs are powered by SandForce controllers and can yield up to 550MB/s read and 515MB/s write speeds as well as up to 90000 IOPS. The Catalyst SSDs come bundled with Dataplex Cache software that makes the combination of a hard drive and an SSD possible. Frequently accessed data and applications are cached to the SSD automatically. Less frequently used data stays on the hard drive. Further boosting performance – Mushkin’s caching policy includes both reads and writes.

“The Catalyst Cache SSD really is the best of both worlds. Users will experience amazing speed while maintaining large amounts of data on their computer. The best part, it’s an upgrade that will not break the bank,” said Brian Flood, Mushkin director of product development.

The Mushkin Catalyst SSD is available now from authorized Mushkin resellers and distributors.

Indeed, cached data typically takes less space and if you can combine hdd reliability with ssd performance seamlessly this will be very interesting to see in datacenter implementations and how efficient it will run
