Fusion ioMemory™ Mezzanine Accelerator
PCIe solutions that deliver cost-effective and proven high application performance
Western Digital has acquired SanDisk. Please visit our Western Digital site for the latest Western Digital's products
The new Fusion ioMemory™ Mezzanine PCIe application accelerators for Blade Servers provide up to 2x higher performance, 33% greater capacity and lower latency data access over the previous ioDrive®2 Mezzanine PCIe cards for mission-critical virtualized, cloud and hyperscale data center environments. These flash based mezzanine PCIe devices are designed for applications requiring high transaction rates and real-time data access where high performance and ultra-low latency is required. These mezzanine PCIe cards sit close to the CPU and deliver high performance that equates to more VMs per server, accelerated database/data mining and faster business intelligence, resulting in cost and time savings.
The latest Fusion ioMemory™ Mezzanine PCIe application accelerators are available in capacities from 1.2TB up to 1.6TB with ultra-low 92µs/15µs read/write data access latency, superior reliability with an UBER 10-20, outstanding random read/write performance of up to 235K/375K IOPS and sequential read/write speed of up to 2.7/1.7 GB/s. These Mezzanine PCIe cards are designed for I/O intensive transactional applications requiring real-time data access such as server virtualization and virtual desktop infrastructure, databases, business intelligence and data mining, real-time financial data processing, seismic data processing, content caching, 3D animation / rendering, CAD/CAM, web infrastructure, RISC migration and In-memory analytics. Available through HP on the latest Gen9 and Gen8 BladeSystem Servers and through Cisco on the latest UCS B-Series Blade Servers, these Mezzanine PCIe cards reduce infrastructure and power and cooling costs by providing high performance, scale, zero footprint, and savings for a low total cost of ownership (TCO).
The Fusion ioMemory Mezzanine PCIe application accelerators offer significant application performance acceleration benefits, can augment existing NAS/SAN HDD based solutions and can also offer an alternative solution for customers that buy large arrays in order to get the performance for their application. Implementing these high performance enterprise-grade NAND flash technology storage devices lowers power consumption, cooling requirements and reduces infrastructure rack space needs over traditional hard drive infrastructures. These new Fusion ioMemory Mezzanine PCIe application accelerators are designed to provide performance driven application environments with deterministic performance, superior reliability, and maximum value.
