Maximizing Performance for Large Data Sets
Fusion-io, pioneer of the world's fastest and highest capacity server-based, storage-class memory solutions, delivers another industry breakthrough product with the ioDrive Octal.
The ioDrive Octal packs the highest IOPS in the industry, 6 GB/s of bandwidth, and 5.12TB of capacity into a single PCI Express device. This enables organizations to tackle previously unattainable workload challenges with a single server, eliminating the latency impact of accessing backing data stores.
This revolutionary performance density allows organizations to:
Driving Database Performance:
Today, getting database performance means adding disks, RAM, servers, and engineering resources, each of which unbalances already inefficient systems and increases both capital and operating costs. Todayís Enterprise SSDs imitate disk drive technology, slightly improving raw storage performance without resolving the core inefficiencies that impact database performance.
Poorly performing databases cause many problems including:
The Fusion-io Solution
Fusionís ioMemory is a revolutionary NAND Flash-based memory tier that restores balance and efficiency to resources like DRAM, CPU, network bandwidth, and disk storage. It delivers unmatched performance to database servers, along with enterprise-grade reliability, all while dramatically reducing infrastructure needs.
Benefits of ioMemory products include:
ioMemory products can be used for any database platform on supported operating systems, including the following.
What Makes ioMemory Different?
ioMemory is about much more than improving raw interface performance for archival storage. Its architecture is unique from all other solid-state technology offerings on the market today. Its NAND Flash acts like memory rather than disk, eliminating the complexity of traditional storage architecture that creates unnecessary context switching, deep queuing, and I/O storms. The end result is that Fusion-io products dramatically improve application performance, even dramatically out-performing RAIDed SSD-based storage arrays.
The following test, performed by Tomís Hardware demonstrates this difference. Whereas, the ioMemory-based ioDrive delivers five times the performance of an SSD, it improves application performance 50 times.
A Look at the Numbers
As the graphs show, ioDrives offer significantly more performance at a much lower cost than even the most cost effective hard disk array.2
Fusion-io Best Practices
The Green Solution
To date, getting more performance has meant increasing power and cooling year-after-year.
Fusion-io reduces each serverís power costs by 40%3 and cooling costs by double the power savings.4 Add to these savings the server compression that Fusion-io makes possible, and Fusion-io becomes one of the greenest moves any company can make.
