Big Trends Fuel Big Data Demands

Today, more devices than ever before are connected to the Internet, including everything from cell phones and tablets to connected appliances and machines. These connected devices are often served data by applications hosted in the cloud, and these two trends are driving unprecedented demand for data. With additional growth in big data analytics fueling new business and scientific discoveries, and growing adoption of virtualization, IT professionals are increasingly looking to more effective and efficient ways to power the applications that drive their businesses.

The ioMemory Solution

Fusion-io was founded in 2006 when its founders recognized that spinning disk-era storage could no longer keep up with modern data demands. With experience in transaction processing, high-performance networking, storage, superclusters, and computing and image processing, the Fusion-io management team recognized that mechanical disk-based storage architectures do not keep pace with advances in digital processing power. This meant that despite major advances in technology, even solid-state disks (SSDs) are limited by the access methods of legacy storage infrastructures. To overcome these limitations, Fusion ioMemory was architected as a high capacity, persistent memory platform for application acceleration.

With its ioMemory software, Fusion-io gives servers native access to data to accelerate the applications we depend on today, from banking, social media, retail, transportation, healthcare, security, entertainment, research and development, and more, all with a solution that allows enterprises to significantly reduce complex and expensive storage sprawl. In addition to accelerating applications, Fusion’s storage memory platform also reduces energy consumption and total cost of ownership.
