Fusion-io Introduces Integrated Application Acceleration Appliances

All-Flash ION Accelerator Appliance and ioControl Hybrid Storage Appliance Available as Integrated Fusion-io Solutions Purpose-Built to Simplify Application Acceleration in Modern Datacenters

SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) today announced that the all-flash ION Accelerator appliance and ioControl Hybrid Storage appliance are now being offered as fully integrated solutions from Fusion-io value added resellers (VARs).  Featuring the industry-leading performance and reliability of Fusion ioMemory, the integrated all-flash and hybrid flash appliances are simple to deploy, purpose-built solutions for accelerating enterprise applications including Oracle, SAP HANA, and Microsoft SQL Server, as well as virtualization workloads.  The Fusion-io flash appliances enhance existing IT infrastructure by delivering application-focused performance for data-intensive workloads, allowing general purpose storage systems to focus on managing data capacity.

"Enterprises of all sizes trust Fusion-io flash memory to accelerate the applications that are critical to their success, and with integrated all-flash and hybrid flash appliances, Fusion-io is making it easier than ever to add performance that enhances existing IT infrastructure," said Gary Smerdon, Fusion-io Chief Strategy Officer.  "Fusion-io is pleased to provide our integrated solutions to our partners interested in offering customers ready-to-ship appliances that optimize the potential of flash as a scalable persistent memory."

The Fusion ION Accelerator appliance maximizes data-intensive application performance in an all-flash solution that leverages the unique architecture of Fusion ioMemory.  Fusion-io partners have set world records with the ION Accelerator solution that boosts application performance by up to 40x while enhancing traditional storage by offloading workload demands.  The scalable all-flash Fusion ION Accelerator appliance features up to 32TB of persistent, ultra low latency flash memory with simple management and seamless integration with enterprise applications in both physical and virtual environments.

"The accuracy of our forecasts and the quality of our real-time website and mobile services makes WetterOnline the trusted source for weather information across Germany," said Bernd Kuhlen, WetterOnline Head of Information Technology.  "After three months of testing, it was clear that the ION Accelerator offered the best performance out of the three appliances we tested.  Fusion ION Accelerator allowed us to run more complex analyses to continue to improve our forecasting services with an affordable all-flash solution that helps us extract more value from our IT systems.  With the ION Accelerator and VMware ESX, we have improved transaction processing speeds while also freeing up existing resources to support new services."

The Fusion ioControl hybrid flash appliance delivers enterprise flash memory performance that accelerates databases, applications and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) by up to 10x in a simple, cost-effective solution that uniquely enables IT professionals to provision performance like capacity.  An easily scalable appliance for small to medium enterprises (SMEs), ioControl eliminates application workload unpredictability in the datacenter by assigning automated performance policies to define IOPS, throughput and latency performance minimums for each application.  Fusion ioControl is the only hybrid appliance architected with persistent, ultra low latency ioMemory flash performance, and is also the only hybrid flash solution that provides the ability to prioritize shared storage resources across mission-critical, business-critical and non-critical applications.

"We have demanding users who need reliable access to complex files and digital models," said Tim Rice, IT Director at Seattle-based LMN Architects.  "We didn't want to buy yesterday's technology.  We wanted our new storage system to provide enough capacity and performance to ensure we wouldn't outgrow it in the near term.  I like the next-generation ioControl hybrid approach, which gets everything out in front of the controllers with PCIe flash memory from Fusion-io. Now we don't have to give performance a second thought."

"Solid state storage (SSS) will have a profound effect on the future of enterprise storage and has already transformed the enterprise datacenter," said Jeff Janukowicz, IDC Research Director.  "IDC believes primary application acceleration will drive the need for subsequent acceleration downstream, creating new and unforeseen demand.  The enterprise all-SSS array market is one of the most critical new drivers of the storage industry."

The all-flash Fusion ION Accelerator appliance is available now to early access customers and will be widely available in Spring 2014 from Fusion-io value added resellers in North America.  The Fusion ioControl Hybrid Storage appliance is now available from Fusion-io value added resellers in North America and EMEA. Contact Fusion-io to connect with a local authorized reseller that can help you find flash that fits your needs.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
