Leading Japanese Hotel Reservations Site Accelerates Mission Critical Data Applications by 8x with Violin All-Flash Arrays
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Memory®, Inc., (NYSE: VMEM) a leading provider of all-flash storage
arrays and appliances delivering application solutions for enterprises,
today announced that IKYU Corporation, a Japan-based Corporation that
provides reservation services for luxury hotels and resorts, has
selected the Violin 6000 All Flash Array solution to support its
mission-critical system as the corporation adds additional new services.
Violin delivered the array solution working closely with its channel
Networks, a Japanese leading importer, developer and distributor of
network products and solutions.
IKYU Corporation operates five large-scale web sites including www.ikyu.com
which supports online reservations for more than 1,500 of Japan's select
hotels, resorts and spas. To renew their mission-critical system for
expected performance expansion and the addition of new services such as
point services, IKYU was looking for a solution that enables the
acceleration and sustained stability of their system without decreasing
the service levels of their online web site.
"Violin's easy-to-install all-flash array solution was easy to deploy
for our mission-critical system," said Mr. Akihito Kanno, CIO with IKYU
Corporation. "We anticipated high implementation costs, but when
considering the on-going operational expenses, Violin's price was not
much different than other storage products, yet the solutions offered
substantially more performance, density, and resiliency. Moreover,
Violin arrays were well-suited with our current server system provider,
Stratus Technologies (News - Alert). The result was server system acceleration,
improved stability and reduced workload across the system. We are
looking forward to receiving continued powerful solutions from Violin
Memory and support capabilities from Macnica Networks."
Violin all-flash array solutions deliver industry-leading input/output
(I/O) and ultra-low data access latencies not possible with traditional
storage systems. With full resiliency and a full software suite of
storage services, the Violin 6000 family provides high reliability with
hot swapping for non-disruptive hardware maintenance. In order to
provide the best service to its customers IKYU required one million
IOPS. Violin's all-flash array delivered one million IOPS, while also
providing higher reliability compared to other flash storage products.
With the deployment of Violin all-flash arrays, IKYU's online web
application improved query response times to deliver immediate request
results within a few seconds to support 80 million data reads without
caching technology. Batch processing times were 8x faster. Violin
all-flash arrays also improved operational efficiency not only with
simple processing time reduction, but also with a significant increase
in the number of parallel processing threads concurrently executable.
"e are very pleased to complete the delivery of Violin all-flash arrays
to IKYU Corporation and to work closely with Violin Memory as their
channel partner in Japan," said Mr. Akinori Kato, Macnica Networks.
"Together with Violin, Magnica Networks has delivered an
ultra-high-speed, fault-tolerant platform for IKYU and we look forward
to supporting IKYU's ongoing storage needs for better performance and
