Fusion-io Hybrid Storage

Fusion-io hybrid storage system provisions performance for multiple applications independently of capacity, delivering the near performance of an all-flash array at the price of a hybrid system. With ioMemory and ioControl software, data moves transparently between high performance and low cost storage media, with dynamic low latency flash caching for both writes and reads.

  • Predictable Performance with Storage QoS
  • Predictable Growth
  • Service Levels for Total Control
  • The Lowest £/GB and £/IOP
  • Maximum Utilization of Storage Resources

Not all solid-state solutions are created equal. Fusion-io offers you the only midrange hybrid storage solution to offer the performance and reliability of PCIe SSD:

  • Extraordinary write limit. With Fusion-io, the SSDs support 275X more data being written as compared to Intel SATA/SAS SSD.
  • Active-Active architecture. Fusion-io uses dual-ported NL SAS disks rather than single-ported SATA drives; this enables us to implement a robust Active-Active architecture and avoid any single point of failures at the drive connection.
  • 22x more IO. Other hybrid vendors have implemented solid-state behind the storage controller – Fusion-io PCIe implementation provides 22x more IO than SSDs behind legacy storage controllers:
    – 5X faster bit transfer rate than SATA/SAS SSD
    – 5X faster reads than SATA/SAS SSD
    – 4.6X faster writes than Netlist NVRAM (capacitor backed memory device)
    – 2X lower latency (50/50 R/W)

Read the recent Whitepaper by John Tolly from Tolly Group as he discusses their independent testing results comparing the performance of two different hybrid storage systems – Fusion ioControl Hybrid Storage using PCIe flash and a conventional hybrid architecture using NVRAM plus SSDs. You’ll learn how and where the performance of these two hybrid architectures differ and what it means to your customers application environment.
