Samsung buys Nvelo, developer of SSD caching software Dataplex
Big news in the SSD market today as Nvelo, developer of the SSD caching software Dataplex has announced that it has been bought by Samsung. Dataplex software is bundled with SSDs of Corsair and OCZ and competes with Intel’s Smart Reponse Technology. With the purchase of Nvelo, Samsung gets both the technology as the development team of Nvelo.
The amount of money involved with the transaction is not disclosed and it’s also unknown if Nvelo will continue to provide their software to other companies or that the software will now become exclusive to Samsung SSDs.
SSD caching software speeds up the system by storing frequently used files on systems that have a small SSD and a larger HDD. By storing the frequently used files on the SSD, the system gets a speed boost as SSDs are faster than HDDs. This technology is used to try to combine the benefit of the speed of SSDs while not increasing the prices too much, as SSDs are more expensive per GB than HDDs.
Dataplex is mainly competing with Intel’s SSD caching softare, Smart Responsive Technology, but has the benefit that it also supports AMD chipsets. The only independent developer of SSD caching software now seems to be Elitebytes with their VeloSSD software.
