A big data architecture built solely on DRAM for performance and spinning disk for storage will suffer from the inefficiencies involved in migrating data between the two. Big data platforms built with Fusion-io can entirely replace spinning-disk storage and reduce DRAM footprints, or complement disk storage as a cache layer.
New flash-based infrastructures, especially caching solutions, require coordination between nodes. East-West traffic, or servers communicating with servers, has increased significantly with the use VM cache migration like vMotion, which requires constant coordination between server nodes. Current solutions, including TCP/IP and UDP, suffer from connectivity issues between nodes, including latency and poor QoS. Fibre Channel gets an update from Emulex with its new CrossLink and ExpressLane features.
Moving mission-critical OLTP and OLAP databases off disks and onto ioMemory brought a host of performance improvements to QuestPoint.
Fusion-io’s low latency solutions now include certified drivers released the same day as the new Windows release—no waiting! We released to customers our “Certified for Windows Server 2012 R2” drivers for all ioMemory products from Fusion and our OEM partners.
The SAN coprocessor advantage comes from moving application read performance from shared storage into flash-accelerated servers. Fusion ioTurbine for physical and virtual server environments accelerates the majority of application needs while leveraging the existing muscle in your SAN, NAS, or DAS environments. Coupled with Fusion ioMemory, ioTurbine turns servers into a seamless SAN coprocessor, effectively turbo-charging your SAN.
Through our collaboration with OCP, Fusion-io is proud to be providing industry-leading ioMemory application acceleration to Quanta for integration into Rackgo X servers.
Fujitsu and Fusion-io are taking their relationship to the next level with the announcement today of a Global Purchase Agreement that enables customers around the world to accelerate databases, virtualization, and enterprise applications with Fusion ioMemory flash for Fujitsu PRIMERGY and PRIMEQUEST servers.
