Emulex and Fusion-io Team Up on I/O Caching and Connectivity Solutions

Emulex LightPulse LPe16000B series adapters can be paired with Fusion-io ioDrive2 PCIe-based flash memory connected to ION Data Accelerator software for fast access to shared storage.

Networking solutions provider Emulex Corp. is work now working with storage innovator Fusion-io to deliver integrated, customized I/O caching and connectivity solutions for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

According to an Emulex Corp. press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB, the partnership aims to “significantly accelerate the performance of databases, data warehouses, heavily virtualized environments, and private/hybrid clouds with improved throughput and application response time.”

The solution being demonstrated this week at Oracle OpenWorld consists of Emulex’s LightPulse LPe16000B Series of 16Gb Fibre Channel (16GFC) Host Bus Adapters (HBAs), and Fusion-io ioDrive2 PCIe-based flash memory connected to ION Data Accelerator software for caching and fast access to shared storage.

“Workloads are becoming more demanding, data is proliferating and shared Fibre Channel-based storage remains the trusted connectivity protocol for storage area networks and the primary backbone of the data center,” says Shaun Walsh, Emulex’s senior vice president of marketing and corporate development.

Emulex’s 10th generation LPe16000B 16GFC HBAs offer 1.2 million I/O operations per second (IOPS) on a single port. The manageability and performance of the overall solution is enhanced with the use of Emulex OneCommand Vision, a proactive performance management solution designed to optimize storage I/O resources within virtualized and cloud environments.††

“Emulex’s dedication to providing fast storage connectivity solutions makes them a natural fit with Fusion-io, as we are both providing innovative solutions that disrupt the status quo and change the way data centers have been architected for decades,” says Tyler Smith, Fusion-io’s vice president of alliances. “By pairing Emulex technology with native ioMemory access to flash memory, customers can accelerate their applications and significantly reduce complex and expensive storage sprawl.”
