Flash Memory at Scale: Fusion-io Goes Large

With growing demand for Flash memory from hyperscale and cloud companies, Fusion-io last week unveiled ioScale, a new product that provides up to 3.2 terabytes of ioMemory capacity. Flash was a hot topic at the Open Compute Summit last week, where Fusion-io SVP of Products Gary Orenstein spoke with Data Center Knowledge editor Rich Miller. Orenstein provides an overview of the ioScale product, which beefs up server processing with ultra-low latency ioMemory per PCI Express slot. ioScale provides up to 3.2 terabytes of ioMemory capacity, and is available to order in a minimum of one hundred units. Pricing starts as low as $3.89 per gigabyte, with increasing discounts based on volume. Based on customer feedback, ioScale was developed from the lessons learned when working with hyperscale companies, and now that market is broadening because it can be deployed in other enterprises as well. The product is currently available. This video runs 6 minutes, 30 seconds.
