Power Profit with Faster Transactions and Better Intelligence

In no other industry does the phrase “time is money” matter more than in the financial industry. Financial companies are ever at the forefront of cutting-edge software development and invest heavily in the most powerful hardware and proprietary software platforms to offer clients the highest returns. Scaling legacy technology to meet performance demands requires adding significant latency to application operations, which creates complex, costly, and volatile systems that eat into profits.

Fusion’s ioMemory tier enables data-decentralized architectures that move terabytes of process-critical data into servers. This minimizes application latency to deliver dramatic improvements to computing performance, while greatly reducing hardware infrastructure, maintenance, and power and cooling costs.
