(OWC), a leading zero emissions
Mac and PC technology company, today announced Transwarp, a revolutionary software solution that redefines traditional hard drive performance. Utilizing any SSD as a removable, flexible cache, Transwarp magically brings the incredible performance of solid state drives to any high-capacity hard drive. Transwarp will be available for preview at CES 2015 at OWC's booth #30572
and is slated for release later this year.
- Combines any SSD and HDD into an intelligent, fast volume
- Achieve the incredible speed benefits of SSDs with the capacity of traditional hard disks
- Quick and easy set-up
- Maintains all data on the HDD
- Compatible with any filesystem supported by OS X
With just a few clicks, combine any SSD and hard drive into a Transwarp drive -- an optimized volume that provides a user with near-instantaneous access to their data. Transwarp intelligently caches the most frequently and recently accessed parts of the volume onto the SSD, vastly improving overall performance while safely maintaining a complete copy of the volume's information on the hard drive.
Transwarp is unique in that it allows the SSD caching drive to be removed without damaging the volume or compromising any data on the hard drive, and unlike conventional cache, Transwarp persists even when the power is turned off. Once the SSD is reconnected, Transwarp seamlessly picks up where it left off, making it a great option for laptop users looking for the flexibility to be light on the road, but fast at home or in the office. Converting a drive from Transwarp happens as quickly as it is created, returning both drives to regular volumes within minutes.
Developed by the same team that brought SoftRAID to the Mac, Transwarp is set to revolutionize the possibilities of hybrid drives.
"Transwarp is an exciting and innovative software solution giving Mac users the best of both worlds in terms of performance and capacity, while maximizing flexibility and data integrity," said Larry O'Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. "We're excited to offer an exclusive first-look at OWC's CES 2015 booth."
