SALT LAKE CITY, May 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) today announced that its all-flash Fusion ION Accelerator version 2.3 is now certified by SAP as an enterprise storage solution for the SAP HANA® platform. Using Fusion ION Accelerator with SAP HANA helps customers maximize mission- and business-critical application performance for data-intensive workloads. This certification enables Fusion-io to participate in SAP's program for SAP HANA-tailored data center integration using its certified solution. Through participation in the program, customers can leverage their existing hardware and infrastructure components for their SAP HANA-based environments, providing further choice for organizations even when working in heterogeneous environments.

Powered by Fusion ioMemory, Fusion ION Accelerator delivers the reliability, breakthrough performance, and high-availability standards required for mission-critical use cases of SAP HANA. Advances in mobile, cloud and big-data technologies require companies to analyze data, make decisions and innovate faster. SAP HANA converges database and application platform capabilities in memory to transform transactions and analytics so businesses can operate in real time. Fusion ION Accelerator easily integrates with IT architectures as a supported, reliable and highly available shared storage environment for customers seeking to add a flash performance tier for their deployments of SAP HANA. 

Fusion ION Accelerator is a record-breaking, all-flash storage solution delivering outstanding performance for application acceleration for business-critical enterprise workloads.

We are thrilled at this latest key technology accomplishment."

Fusion ioMemory increases transactional database performance and accelerates business intelligence with far less infrastructure needed than disk-based solutions. Customers that use Fusion-io flash memory with SAP HANA can realize faster data load times, faster back-up and recovery times, and better SAN utilization. Fusion ION Accelerator delivers increased performance and scalability for deployments of SAP HANA at dramatically lower capacity costs.
