Server Virtualization Solutions

We can scale performance for a fraction of the cost with Fusion-io than with traditional disk-based solutions.

Ignite Virtual Server Performance and Efficiency with Flash Based ioMemory

Server virtualization randomizes even sequential storage workloads, which presents the most challenging I/O profile for hard disks to handle. This phenomenon, frequently referred to as the “I/O blender,” quickly taps disk I/O capabilities, presenting great performance challenges for virtualized applications as they contend for disk resources. In addition, slow disk I/O can limit the growth of VM density so customers realize less consolidation savings because more physical hardware and software licenses are required.

Fusion-io solutions for server virtualization eliminate the I/O performance bottleneck making it possible for organizations to maximize virtualization server workload, increase VM performance, and fully realize virtualization’s consolidation potential.
