CasMentis presents its new software FastForward.IO the first generation, that accelerates data access up to 300% on conventional hard drives under Windows. Reduces load times and working with the PC becomes more fluid. The software runs on Windows XP, makes no modifications to the operating system and requires no additional hardware. The wide spread of conventional hard drives in the PC sector, long loading times are still a nuisance for many users. Because SSDs are significantly more expensive for capacity and a subsequent conversion requires interventions in hard – and software, a change in the situation in the near future is not expected. With CasMentis, FastForward.IO is now a cheap and simple alternative, which noticeably reduces SSD load times as a pure software solution with conventional hard drives or in conjunction with one. Benefit above all common and become slower over time computer.
The idea behind the software is not completely new: because when booting or when application starts mostly the same data is retrieved from the hard disk, the appropriate access patterns can be learned. For a repeat, the data is loaded then in advance and available faster (prefetching”). Current operating systems sometimes even use similar procedures such as Windows or Linux. So far however above all the boats is accelerated up to the start of the desktop, then starts for many users the long wait. “, says Managing Director Dr. Dirk Pollmacher.
Just application launches often benefit from CasMentis FastForward.IO, because it analyzes all data access regardless of the boot process. It works close to the hardware and is thereby especially efficiently. It is based on a new algorithm in the field of machine learning, which analyzes hundreds of thousands of data access and learn in fractions of a second.
