(NYSE: FIO) today announced ION Data Accelerator
demonstrations at Oracle OpenWorld that delivers accelerated
performance for Oracle Database
environments, as well as enhanced end-to-end data integrity verified by the T10 Protection Information (T10 PI)
specification. With Fusion ION Data Accelerator Software and Fusion ioDrive2
server flash memory products supporting the Oracle Linux operating system, Oracle
Database, and Emulex LightPulse®
Gen 5 Fibre Channel (16Gb Fibre Channel) Host Bus Adapters (HBAs).
Using the T10 PI specification, data corruption is noticed and fixed as it is written to shared storage, helping ensure reliability for enterprise applications.
The T10 PI data integrity demonstration features the Fusion ION Data Accelerator shared storage solution with Oracle Linux and Emulex Gen 5 FC HBAs. The demonstration incorporates Oracle Linux with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, which supports integrity features that leverage the T10 PI specification.
The data integrity testing was conducted by inserting corrupt data into the system and verifying that despite the insertions, data integrity on ION Data Accelerator was not compromised. Using the T10 PI specification, data corruption is noticed and fixed as it is written to shared storage, helping ensure reliability for enterprise applications. The demonstration incorporates Oracle Linux with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, which supports integrity features that leverage the T10 PI specification. Additional technical details about the T10 PI reliability demo are available here.
Live demonstration of the Data integrity solution is being featured at Fusion-io booth 1127 during Oracle OpenWorld 2013 in San Francisco from September 22-26. Read the press release.
