SALT LAKE CITY, June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) today announced that it is accelerating the music databases of global online music leader, Spotify. The global digital music service has adopted the Fusion ioMemory platform in its datacenters to rapidly deliver music from its Apache Cassandra database to listeners worldwide.

"Today's listeners expect to be able to access music instantaneously on any device, and Spotify's powerful database is essential to quickly serving up tracks while promoting new music discovery," said Gary Orenstein, Fusion-io Senior Vice President of Products. "The Spotify database team will continue to deliver on high customer expectations for millions of users worldwide with Fusion ioMemory, which is uniquely designed as a platform for application acceleration."

Integrated into datacenter servers, the Fusion ioMemory platform is built to accelerate organizations' most important applications, such as the open source Apache Cassandra database that powers the Spotify music platform. Hyperscale leaders like Spotify use Fusion ioScale in servers to maintain the speed of success in the business of today's increasingly global online pop culture. Unlike solid state disks, Fusion ioMemory platforms like ioScale are architected to manage flash like memory, providing ultra-low latency performance for databases even in the largest of hyperscale datacenters.

"Spotify users expect fast results across all of their devices. Fusion ioMemory gives us the speed and scalability we need to grow our footprint worldwide with new services and scale our user base by the millions," said Patrik Torstensson, Architect at Spotify.

Spotify and Fusion-io are presenting on accelerating for Apache Cassandra at the Apache Cassandra Summit June 11-12, 2013 in San Francisco. Fusion-io and Spotify will be hosting a Cassandra Summit Kickoff reception from 6:30-8:30 pm PT on June 10, 2013. To RSVP to attend, visit www.fusionio.com/spotifycassandrasummitmixer.
