UK-based housing provider improves virtual desktop density and enables up to 120 VMs per server with Fusion-io.
Recently we teamed up with Cisco’s UCS team to jointly benchmark a unique combination of two UCS servers running ESX with VMmark workload generators. The combination has set a new world record for this class of servers on VMmark. The flexibility of ION opens up many possibilities for datacenter architects who are running virtualization technologies.
Accelerating database servers and virtualization environments and building private clouds on Dell servers with ioMemory is better than ever. Dell supports more servers and has qualified higher capacity ioMemory devices—up to 3TB for ioDrive2s and up to 2.4TB for ioDrive2 Duos.
SQL Server databases have the most to gain from improved manageability and high availability. A new reference architecture by Fusion-io and Datalink outlines how to achieve high performance SQL Server database clusters with ioTurbine intelligent caching software and ioMemory on Cisco UCS servers.
It became clear to me not only that there were major shifts in memory-storage hierarchy about to be unleashed, but also that Fusion-io had the best minds in the world to make it happen. The rest is a matter of history, luck, and legwork.
IT solution provider Modrus Limited increased per-server processing six times over SSDs.
When blending flash and hard disk drives in the datacenter, there are two main approaches: caching and tiering. The smart approach is to make a decision driven by the application objectives first, and then the media mixture second.
One of the interesting things about NexGen in the light of today’s news is that we never had an exit strategy. Our goal was to grow the company in the way that would best serve the needs of customers. As we become part of Fusion-io today, I see this next phase in NexGen’s growth as a new beginning rather than the end. It’s strategy that allows NexGen to scale, innovate, and create customer value at Fusion-io speed.
By making Fusion ioDrives available in the Microsoft Technology Centers worldwide, we are pleased to help customers experience how ultra-low latency performance accelerates powerful Microsoft applications running on ioMemory.
