LAS VEGAS, April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --CacheIO, the high performance storage
leader for intense media applications, today announced that it has qualified
the Micron M500 960GB solid state drive (SSD) from Micron Technology, Inc. in
its all flash array designed for media workflow applications. CacheIO will
demonstrate the all flash array utilizing the Micron M500 960GB SSDs in a 4K
film production environment at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB)
tradeshow in Las Vegas, April 6 – 11. The demonstration will be held in
conjunction with 4K film application leaders including MTI Film (booth
SL15510) and Digital Vision (Renaissance Hotel, the Chairman's room).

By incorporating the Micron M500 960GB SSDs, CacheIO can now scale its all
flash array to 40 terabytes of usable SSD storage. This provides unprecedented
economics and scale linearly across multiple arrays to tens of terabytes under
one single file system. The CacheIO proprietary software preserves the
performance and endurance of Micron M500 SSDs for more than 10 years. Each
CacheIO flash array provides a blazing bandwidth of more than 140Gbps,
enabling real-time streaming of up to nine concurrent uncompressed 4K streams,
with no performance loss due to the fragmentation suffered by traditional hard
disk-based systems. Its innovative compact design incorporates up to 18 x
8Gbps fibre channel ports which can be shared by many media production
workstations under the management of Quantum's StorNext file system.

"We're seeing tremendous interest in the M500 SSD for cloud, media, and Web
2.0 applications," said Justin Sykes, general manager of Micron's personal
storage SSD team. "Customers are thrilled to see high reliability and
performance coupled with terabyte-class capacity in a single SSD."

"As media production moves to 4K, 8K and higher frame rates, it's essential to
support media workflows with affordable, large capacity, high bandwidth, long
endurance solid state storage that does not lose performance to file
fragmentation," said Bang Chang, CEO of Cache IO. "CacheIO is pleased that
Micron has delivered the ideal SSD to meet these requirements. The Micron M500
960GB SSD leads the industry with the highest bandwidth and largest capacity,
coupled with a new level of price competitiveness."
