"From enabling enterprises to conduct more database transactions and fulfill more customer orders, to making decisions more quickly through rapid business intelligence analysis, processing information faster gives companies a competitive advantage in our real-time economy," said Jeff Treuhaft, Fusion-io Executive Vice President of Products. "ION Data Accelerator software delivers powerful shared storage performance for enterprise databases like Oracle and Oracle RAC to accelerate business-critical information using industry standard server platforms and Fusion ioMemory. By sharing Fusion ioMemory flash from ION-powered servers, enterprises worldwide are maximizing real-world performance delivered through a simple, high availability architecture that features proven technologies and solutions trusted by leaders."

Many companies adopting the Fusion ION Data Accelerator shared storage solution are adding performance to enhance the capabilities of a centralized SAN with shared flash memory for application acceleration and simplified administration. A leading European service provider for the global tourism industry added ION Data Accelerator to its HP servers to accelerate its Oracle database, helping the company ensure real-time accuracy in availability and pricing across billions of travel options.

One of the largest healthcare providers in northern Europe is using ION Data Accelerator with Dell servers to store its electronic patient records. In its evaluation, the hospital noted that it required speeds that respond to queries as fast as an Internet search engine. The ease of installation with ION Data Accelerator made it simple for the hospital to accelerate its system and improve efficiency, helping to save the valuable time of medical staff while providing faster patient care. 

An American online advertising analytics company is migrating its Oracle database to ION Data Accelerator to more rapidly evaluate ad placement, pricing and effectiveness. This responsiveness enables the analytics company to provide customers with critical business intelligence, enabling clients to quickly learn from campaigns that are working well and adjust those that need more fine-tuning.

Headquartered in Asia, one of the world's largest ship building companies is leveraging Fusion ION Data Accelerator software for its core Oracle Project Lifecycle Management (PLM) database. With ION Data Accelerator, the company is now able to create complex 3D models significantly faster, in just 15 seconds.

One of Japan's largest grocery chains selected ION Data Accelerator software after a nine-month evaluation of all-flash array products. The company is using ION Data Accelerator with HP servers to reconcile all point of sale transactions, enabling it to monitor sales and prepare reports rapidly, helping to ensure it capitalizes on opportunity by responding to real-time demand.

ION Data Accelerator has also been selected by one of the world's largest air conditioning equipment manufacturers to meet its business requirement to adopt the highest performance solution available. The Asia-based company found that it would have needed more than 200 disk drives to meet its strict performance specifications. With ION Data Accelerator, the manufacturer is now able to provide breakthrough performance for its Oracle RAC database in just two 2U servers from IBM.

Fusion ION Data Accelerator is now available from Fusion-io and leading server systems vendors.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
