Abstract

The present invention is a scalable, networked storage controller that incorporates dynamically reconfigurable cache for the purposes of allocating cache to serve as a solid-state disk (SSD) or as controller cache memory. The cache resides in each storage controller and can be configured on the fly as system requirements for cache vs. SSD space change.
