From Yesterday, Fusion-io to Accelerate Cisco UCS Blade Server Performance


Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) today announced that it has entered into an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) relationship with Cisco. Through the new relationship, Fusion ioMemory will be architected into the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) Server to amplify in-server performance in all UCS B-series blade servers.

"The next wave of enterprise IT will be driven by productivity. In addition to demanding lower IT costs, customers also require elevated performance and flexibility. Cisco UCS is meeting these customer requirements through an innovative approach to computing systems," said Paul Perez, Chief Technology Officer, Data Center Group at Cisco. "We are developing the next generation of fabric computing and customers recognize Fusion-io as a market leader in flash technology for the enterprise. With its strong track record of reliability and unique cut-through architecture, Fusion ioMemory will amplify the power of Cisco UCS Blade Servers to provide scalable application acceleration for Cisco customers."

The Cisco Unified Computing System is a next-generation data center solution that unites compute, network, storage access, and virtualization into a cohesive system designed to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase business agility. With ultra low latency ioMemory architected into UCS blade servers, storage performance can be decoupled from capacity through the integration of a powerful new memory tier uniquely designed to accelerate applications.
