Sine-Wave Accelerates Digital Nervous System Platform with Fusion ioMemory

Sine-Wave Technologies, Inc. recently announced that it has used Fusion ioMemory solution to successfully accelerate its Digital Nervous System platform. The Fusion ioMemory has enabled Sine-Wave customers to leverage real-time responsiveness in applications and accelerate their private Internet of Things architectures.

The ioMemory platform provides consistent low latency access for mixed workloads with 15-microsecond access latency, 3GB/s bandwidth, over 700,000 read IOPS and over 1,100,000 write IOPS. The sophisticated ioMemory architecture delivers best-in-class low queue depth performance, making the ioDrive2 and ioDrive2 Duo ideal across a wide variety of real world, high-performance enterprise environments.

The ioMemory platform integrates with host system CPUs as a memory tier to give multiple (and mostly idle) processor cores, direct and parallel access to the flash. The platform's cut-through architecture gives systems more work per unit of processing, and continues to deliver performance increases as CPU power increases. It also includes powerful features to eliminate concerns about reliability, including NAND failures and excessive wear.  The all-new intelligent, self-healing feature called Adaptive Flashback provides complete, chip-level fault tolerance, which enables ioMemory products to repair itself after a single chip or a multi-chip failure without interrupting business continuity.

"As more devices connect to the Internet of Things, companies require faster platforms, like Sine-Wave's Digital Nervous System, to deliver the consistent performance that keeps their businesses running while providing room for future growth and spikes in demand," said Jonathan Clark, Sine-Wave founder and CEO. "In my career developing software and enterprise systems, rarely do I come across hardware that is a fundamental shift like the ioDrive2. We look forward to seeing what our customers do with the added performance capabilities made possible by Fusion-io (News - Alert)."

In related news, Fusion-io recently announced that it is teaming up with leading software provider Sqrrl to deliver breakthrough acceleration for secure big data workloads. Powered by Apache Accumulo and Hadoop, the big data platform Sqrrl Enterprise is a secure and scalable NoSQL database for real-time big data applications. By integrating Sqrrl Enterprise and Fusion ioMemory, database architects can simplify development and scale up an Accumulo big data system to accelerate performance with up to ten times more density while saving on costs that can otherwise break agency budgets.
