FUSION-IO has announced that its all-flash Fusion ION Accelerator version 2.3 is now certified by SAP as an enterprise storage solution for the SAP HANA platform.
This certification enables the flash memory solutions provider to participate in SAP’s program for SAP HANA-tailored data center integration using its solution.
Through participation in the program, customers can leverage their existing hardware and infrastructure components for their HANA-based environments, providing further choice for organizations even when working in heterogeneous environments.
“Fusion-io enables customers to quickly gather real-time intelligence to make informed business decisions through application acceleration,” said Fusion-io chief information officer, Keith Brown.
“Fusion ION Accelerator – when used as a pair of clustered devices – is SAP-certified to scale-out to up to 32 nodes, making it one of the industry’s leading scale-out storage solutions for HANA. We are thrilled at this latest key technology accomplishment,“ he added.
Powered by Fusion ioMemory, the company’s software defined storage platform, Fusion ION Accelerator is touted to deliver the reliability, breakthrough performance, and high-availability standards required for mission-critical use cases of SAP HANA.
Advances in mobile, cloud and big-data technologies require companies to analyze data, make decisions and innovate faster. SAP HANA converges database and application platform capabilities in memory to transform transactions and analytics so businesses can operate in real time.
The solution easily integrates with IT architectures as a supported, reliable and highly available shared storage environment for customers seeking to add a flash performance tier for their deployments of SAP HANA.
The company claims Fusion ION Accelerator is a record-breaking, all-flash storage solution delivering outstanding performance for application acceleration for business-critical enterprise workloads.
Fusion ioMemory increases transactional database performance and accelerates business intelligence with far less infrastructure needed than disk-based solutions.
Customers that use Fusion-io flash memory with SAP HANA can realize faster data load times, faster back-up and recovery times, and better SAN utilization. Fusion ION Accelerator delivers increased performance and scalability for deployments of SAP HANA at dramatically lower capacity costs.
Fusion-io also claimed its partners have set world records with Fusion ION Accelerator appliances that accelerate applications up to 40 times while enhancing traditional storage by offloading performance demands.
Its high availability replicates data between appliances using low-latency connections and optimized data placement that minimizes the impact of replication on overall database performance while providing administrators with the data availability required to run their businesses smoothly.
