RNA Networks is a software company focused on providing the next generation storage cache solution that addresses performance deficiencies and the rising cost of storage for virtual environments. Our software solution utilizes compute resources (DRAM and flash) as a distributed clustered cache moving 'active' data off of the storage tier and into the compute tier translating to significant performance gains with no additional investment in hardware resources. RNA's MVX technology is based on a distributed shared memory core that leverages RDMA fabrics and allows for a unified and flexible namespace that can scale proportionally to meet any performance or capacity need.
In this presentation we'll discuss the core architecture and how this can be leveraged to both reduce the cost of high end storage and meet high performance storage objectives.
