Previewing Innovation at HP Discover

Fusion-io is a Silver-level sponsor this year at HP Discover in Vienna and we have a number of activities planned at the event. You can find us at the following locations:
Fusion-io in the Discover Zone (booth #15).   Make sure you stop by our booth on the Expo floor and see our live HP IO Accelerator demo. The demo will showcase the power of Fusion’s ioMemory technology and advantages for customers looking for cost-effective solutions that accelerate application performance and reduce data latencies.  Find out how HP customers are using IO Accelerators with their databases and virtualization environments while also simplifying their datacenter infrastructure and reducing associated costs.
While at the booth, be sure to enter our giveaway to win an iPad2 !
Previewing Innovation
Fusion-io is also giving a live technology preview demonstration of Fusion ioMemory in booth 21 in the Discover Zone. Conducted in support of the emerging SCSI Express standard, the preview demonstration showcases ioMemory connected with a 2U HP ProLiant DL380 G7 server via SCSI Express.
Connecting via the PCIe-based SCSI Express standard is consistent with Fusion’s cut-through architecture, which reduces latency and increases performance by moving data closer to the server CPU. Our HP Discover 2011 demo uses the same ioMemory and VSL technology as the recently announced Fusion ioDrive2 products, demonstrating the possibility of extending Fusion’s Virtual Storage Layer (VSL) software capabilities to a new form factor to enable accelerated application performance and enterprise-class reliability. We’re excited to be working with other industry leaders like HP to continue to innovate and provide enterprise customers more options to accelerate their critical applications.
An emerging standard, SCSI Express is used for connecting and transferring data between computers and other devices is optimized for PCI Express deployment. Delivering low latency to storage memory devices attached via the PCIe bus, the standard includes a SCSI Command set optimized for solid-state technologies such as Fusion ioMemory. SCSI Express delivers enterprise attributes and reliability with a Universal Drive Connector that offers utmost flexibility and device interoperability, including SAS, SATA and SCSI Express. The Universal Drive Connector also preserves legacy investments and enables support for emerging storage memory devices.
If you’re in Vienna this week, drop by booth 15 in the Discover Zone to see Fusion-io, and make sure you also see the preview demonstration located in booth 21. Hope to see you there!
