SALT LAKE CITY, March 1, 2011 -- Fusion-io announced today that IBM will now offer eight versions of High IOPS Adapters based on Fusion’s ioMemory technology for deployment in its System x Server line.
In addition, 12 IBM System x servers are now qualified for Fusion Powered IBM products, greatly increasing IBM customers’ options for integrating the new class of server-attached NAND Flash developed by Fusion-io into their architectures. All High IOPS Adapters will feature IBM’s world-class support.
“As data demands continue to exponentially grow in the enterprise, Fusion’s innovative server-deployed memory solutions can offer our customers a way to significantly and safely accelerate their database and application infrastructure,” said Bob Galush, IBM’s VP System x High Volume Servers and Options.
The IBM High IOPS Adapters will now be available in eight different models as part of new System x server deployments or as an option to add to existing servers. In addition to the four models already available, IBM now offers its High IOPS Adapters in 640GB MLC, 320GB SLC, 640GB SLC Duo and 1.28T MLC Duo formats for the System x server line.
IBM has also qualified for several new System x servers for use with the High IOPS Adapters, including the BladeCenter HX5.
In addition, the Fusion Powered High IOPS Adapter ships as an option in the IBM Smart Analytics System 5600; Fusion Powered technology comes standard in the IBM WebSphere DataPower XC10.
“As IBM is one of the most forward-thinking, innovative companies in the industry, Fusion-io is excited to be collaborating with the IBM team to address the data supply problem that has stubbornly kept processor utilization at less than 20 percent in the data center,” said Neil Carson, CTO of Fusion-io. “Known for consistently delivering innovative and efficient solutions, IBM’s world-class engineers have found impressive ways to improve the capabilities of ioMemory in order to bring their customers high levels of enterprise-class performance and reliability for enterprise applications, database acceleration, virtualization and cloud computing environments.”
The new IBM High IOPS adapters will be available to order on March 1, 2011. To learn more about the offerings, go to:
Fusion-io, a leading provider of system, application and database acceleration, is unleashing the potential of performance-starved applications, allowing companies to rethink the way they architect their data systems. With a Fusion Powered data center, companies can increase productivity, shrink time to market and improve their customers' experience, all with less hardware, less power, and less administration.
The ever-growing complexity of scientific and engineering problems continues to pose new computational challenges. Thus, we present a novel federation model that enables end-users with the ability to aggregate heterogeneous resource scale problems. The feasibility of this federation model has been proven, in the context of the UberCloud HPC Experiment, by gathering the most comprehensive information to date on the effects of pillars on microfluid channel flow.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
