Fusion-io Welcomes Cisco, Our Newest OEM

Fusion ioMemory products have been qualified for Cisco Servers for some time, and customers have been asking about using Fusion ioMemory in UCS Blades. Today, we're proud to welcome Cisco as an original equipment manufacturer.

Through our new relationship, Fusion ioMemory will be architected into the Unified Computing System (UCS) Servers to amplify in-server performance in UCS B-series blade servers. The Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) is a next-generation data center platform that unites compute, network, storage access, and virtualization into a cohesive system designed to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase business agility, thus making Fusion’s ultra low latency ioMemory an ideal fit for accelerating UCS Blade Servers.

Commenting on the new partnership between Fusion-io and Cisco, Paul Perez, CTO of Cisco Data Center Group, noted that, “The next wave of enterprise IT will be driven by productivity. In addition to demanding lower IT costs, customers also require elevated performance and flexibility. Cisco UCS is meeting these customer requirements through an innovative approach to computing systems. We are developing the next generation of fabric computing and customers recognize Fusion-io as a market leader in flash technology for the enterprise. With its strong track record of reliability and unique cut-through architecture, Fusion ioMemory will amplify the power of Cisco UCS Blade Servers to provide scalable application acceleration for Cisco customers.”

We're at Cisco Live this week in booth 318 showcasing how Fusion ioMemory can boost Cisco performance. If you're in San Diego, come on by so we can learn more about you and show you how ioMemory can accelerate applications in Cisco's powerful servers. If you're not at Cisco Live, we'll be hosting a number of webinars soon that are custom-developed to help channel partners learn more about  ioMemory.
