Award-winning Performance

ION Accelerator products are designed from the ground up for performance. Its design incorporates Fusion ioMemory along with a streamlined, innovative software stack that eliminates bottlenecks that includes these features:

Multi-lane PCIe

ION Accelerator products feature an innovative multi-lane PCIe architecture that scales performance with capacity and eliminates bottlenecks from slower storage protocol interfaces used by other systems. This, combined with ioMemory’s industry-leading low latency, ensures end-users the fastest possible response times.

Four Storage Processors

With High-Availability ION Accelerator products, four storage processors simultaneously accelerate performance for volumes distributed across two appliances. Software optimizations enable parallel processing that multiplies ION storage processor speeds over conventional all flash systems.

Optimized Synchronous Replication

With High-Availability ION Accelerator products, data is replicated between appliances using a low-latency connection and optimized data placement that minimizes the impact of replication on overall database performance.

Enterprise Data Integration

The ION Accelerator product enables top database applications to run at the highest levels of performance. ION Accelerator seamlessly integrates with Oracle Enterprise Manager to deliver simple capacity planning and historical performance monitoring.

For application environments ranging from OLTP to OLAP and from In-Memory to NoSQL, the ION Accelerator delivers unmatched acceleration.
