Such outcome was expected because of two reasons, one related with the disk drive mechanism, and other related with the disk cache
Although in the beginning the modelling of the disk mechanism seemed much more complex than the modelling of the other system components, especially the disk cache
, it proved to be a wrong assumption.
A single solid-state disk cache
may be leveraged across the entire networked storage infrastructure.
If the disk cache
is set to the default setting, and you perform disk intensive operations, the machine may freeze.
and UNIX server capability; and 4-GB hard disk cache
is priced at $5,995.
TenXpert is a dedicated, stand-alone, multi-user Novell, Windows NT, and UNIX CD-ROM network server offering up to 36 GB of hard disk cache
that significantly enhances CD library performance, according to the company.
These H50 motherboards use four of IBM's 32- bit PowerPC 604e processors and can support up to 3Gb of main memory, which is used as disk cache
memory in the Tarpon array.
The TenXpert is a dedicated, standalone, multi-user, CD-ROM network server with a large hard disk cache
that offers users of Cygnet's popular id 100 instant, direct network connection and significantly enhances jukebox performance.

A number of drives now available have a seek time of just over 200 ms; some even boast a seek time of 40 ms with the use of a 256K on-drive disk cache
(data buffer) and the Smart-Drive utility included with DOS 6.
A disk cache
dynamically duplicates part of the contents of your hard disk in fast RAM so that it can be read (and sometimes written to) at RAM speed.
Whatever the clock speed of your computer, you will see a difference with the help of a disk cache
In contrast, if all the data were in a disk cache
on the 3081, one could hope to reduce the runtime by 96.
Chatty or bandwidth hungry applications are accelerated using a central disk cache
of up to 18 Terabytes.
