"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.

We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. SD-WAN helps enterprises to take advantage of the exploding landscape of cloud applications and services, due to its unique capability to support all things cloud related.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
In an era of historic innovation fueled by unprecedented access to data and technology, the low cost and risk of entering new markets has leveled the playing field for business. Today, any ambitious innovator can easily introduce a new application or product that can reinvent business models and transform the client experience. In their Day 2 Keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Mercer Rowe, IBM Vice President of Strategic Alliances, and Raejeanne Skillern, Intel Vice President of Data Center Group and GM, discussed how clients in this new era of innovation can apply data, technology, plus human ingenuity to springboard to advance new business value and opportunities.
DXWorldEXPO LLC announced today that "IoT Now" was named media sponsor of CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO 2018 New York, which will take place on November 11-13, 2018 in New York City, NY. IoT Now explores the evolving opportunities and challenges facing CSPs, and it passes on some lessons learned from those who have taken the first steps in next-gen IoT services.
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to the new world.
