MFT Software Can Increase Your
Server Speed 20- to 50-Fold ... Cheaply
Our second customer said it best: "MFT did what you said it would do. The first time I ran it, the time to do my end of day job dropped
from 10 hours 55 minutes to 27 minutes." (Click here for testimonial.) That customer was replacing a pair of 10,000 rpm SCSI drives with a pair of 266x CF cards, and using a database that made 4kb random writes. Modern SLC (single-level cell) Flash drives can run as much as seven times as fast as those old clunkers.
Today, MFT delivered with Flash SSDs made with premium single-level cell (SLC) technology can deliver thousands of random writes and reads a second, 7x24, for years. But the most exciting opportunity is the 95% of all servers that are medium and light duty. These servers can be made dramatically fast virtually without expense. MLC (multi-level cell) technology is significantly less expensive per gigabyte than many 15k rpm high-speed disk drives, and we offer a reduced price version of MFT for these.
By themselves, these MLC drives are totally unsuitable for server use. They lack both the write speed needed and long life in a random write environment. But MFT fixes all these problems, accelerating random write speeds up to 400-fold, while extending useful life by close to two orders of magnitude. This makes these MLC drives suitable for use in any server that, on average, overwrites its storage media less that once in any 24 hour day, and with some brands of MLC up to four times a day.
The simple truism is that if you can run your job today on a 15k rpm drive, even if that drive set is saturated 100% of of the time with random writes, then there is an MLC drive of the same size that, together with MFT, can read and write the same amount of work, but do it in an hour or so, rather than taking all day to deliver data to your CPU.
