SanDisk Corporation’s new generation of its Fusion ioMemoryTM PCIe application accelerators are designed to dramatically improve performance, while helping to drive data center consolidation and lower total cost of ownership. The new Fusion ioMemory PCIe application accelerators — comprised of SanDisk NAND flash, and Virtual Storage Layer (VSL) data access acceleration software — deliver up to a 4x price performance improvement, with up to a 61% list price reduction over the previous generation Fusion ioDrive®2 product.
The Fusion ioMemory portfolio offers an array of form factors ranging from PCIe cards to mezzanine storage for HP and Cisco blade servers. Each card is optimized for mixed-use or read-intensive workloads and can also be paired with SanDisk’s recently announced next generation FlashSoft caching software, which reduces I/O latency in VMware vSphere®, Windows Server® and Linux environments, helping customers further accelerate enterprise applications.
The newly updated Fusion ioMemory application accelerator portfolio includes:
- SX350 and SX300 Series—ranging in capacity from 1.25TB up to 6.4TB, the SX350 and SX300 provide a cost-efficient solution for both mixed-use workloads such as virtualization, databases, business intelligence and real-time financial data processing and read-intensive workloads, such as web hosting, data mining, seismic data processing, content caching, 3D Animation, and CAD/CAM.
- PX600 Series—Ranging from 1TB up to 5.2TB, the PX600 series is designed for mixed-use workloads such as virtualization, databases, business intelligence and real-time financial data processing.
- Mezzanine Series—Available on the latest HP Gen9 and Gen8 BladeSystem Servers and the newest CISCO UCS B-Series Blade Servers, the SanDisk’s Mezzanine Series delivers high performance and density gains over hard disk drives for virtualized environments. Utilizing the Mezzanine cards helps support more virtual machines per server, and accelerates database mining and business intelligence, resulting in cost and time savings.
- FlashSoft Bundles—The new bundles deliver the benefits of Fusion ioMemory flash hardware and caching software in a single solution that is easy to evaluate, deploy and support, regardless of storage operating systems or architectures.
Each of the new Fusion ioMemory PCIe cards also offer 2x more random read performance over the ioDrive2 generation for increased endurance, and an updated Virtual Storage Layer (VSL), which provides direct memory access, minimizes latency and maximizes application throughput1.
