Cache IQ

Cache IQ is a storage solutions company delivering the industry’s first and only intelligent caching and visibility product designed to tame the out-of-control growth of network attached storage while optimizing critical application performance.

A group of veteran storage and networking entrepreneurs founded Cache IQ in 2010 to create an intelligent approach to file-based caching to help companies get control of their expanding storage requirements and associated spending.

By intelligently decoupling performance from capacity, Cache IQ’s RapidCache solution provides a simpler, smarter approach to NAS caching. Instead of blindly caching data solely on access, buying more disks, or tiering storage, RapidCache maximizes existing storage by prioritizing the most important applications — providing complete usage visibility, caching only the right data, controlling application performance, and automatically troubleshooting bottlenecks.
