? Delivers significant improvements in application performance by reducing latency in enterprise applications with a persistent, reliable, high-performance and high-capacity storage tier
? Provides Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) and block storage that integrates transparently with Cisco UCS servers to immediately improve performance and relieve I/O bottlenecks
? Offers from 1 to approximately 30 terabytes (TB) of capacity in a single 2-socket server and up to approximately 55TB in a 4-socket server
? Powerful manageability features, including inventory, service profiles mapping, and firmware updates for one or many Cisco UCS PCIe flash-memory devices with Cisco UCS Manager, and the capability to track flash-memory endurance
? Significantly reduces complexity in customer environments compared the products of most competing solution vendors, which require manual command-line interface (CLI) processes per PCIe card
Fusion ioMemory3 Solutions for Cisco UCS
? Dramatically reduced TCO: PCIe flash memory can be used to eliminate the need for SAN or network-attached storage (NAS) infrastructure or to augment existing array infrastructure. With significant performance improvements in both cases, Cisco customers can reduce the amount of physical infrastructure they need to deploy, increase the number of virtual machines that they can place on a single physical server, and further improve overall system efficiency. These improvements provide savings in capital expenditures (CapEx) and operating expenses (OpEx), including reduced application licensing fees and savings related to space, cooling, and energy use.
? Improved enterprise reliability through self-healing features, wear management, and predictive monitoring: Cisco UCS adapters for Fusion ioMemory PX600 and SX300 include powerful features to eliminate concerns about reliability, such as NAND flash-memory failures and excessive wear. The intelligent, self-healing Fusion-io Adaptive Flashback feature provides complete chip-level fault tolerance, allowing the Cisco UCS adapters for the Fusion-io Atomic Series to recover from a single- or multiple-chip failure without interrupting business continuity.
