Based on Technology Trusted to Accelerate Energy-Efficient Facebook Datacenters, Fusion-Powered Hyve Solutions OCP Platform Extends OCP Performance and Flexibility within Existing IT Infrastructure
SAN JOSE, Calif. – Jan. 28, 2014 [Open Compute Project Summit V Booth B8] – Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) and Hyve Solutions, a division of SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), are teaming up at Open Compute Project (OCP) Summit V to enhance the accessibility of open computing with a joint solution that delivers the performance, efficiency and flexibility of hyperscale in existing datacenters. Featuring Hyve Solutions OCP 1500 Series servers and Fusion ioScale flash memory products, the OCP-inspired solution integrates into existing 19-inch rack servers, and is based on the same flash memory technology that is trusted to deliver performance and efficiency in datacenters of Facebook, founder of the Open Compute Project. Hyve intends to submit the product for certification at the new Open Compute Certification and Solution Laboratory at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
“Solutions designed around the principles of Open Compute deliver high performance and efficiency, and Hyve Solutions OCP 1500 Series servers with Fusion ioMemory make it simple to achieve these goals even with existing datacenter infrastructure,” said Steve Ichinaga, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Hyve Solutions. “We’re proud to make open computing even more accessible to companies interested in embracing the efficiency of hyperscale, as the Fusion-powered Hyve Solutions OCP 1500 Series platform allows companies to adopt the performance, power efficiency and vanity free designs of OCP without removing or retrofitting existing rack infrastructure.”
The Hyve Solutions OCP 1500 Series server is specifically engineered for companies seeking the power efficiency and price benefits of open compute platforms within existing datacenter requirements for standard 19-inch server racks. The Hyve Solutions OCP 1500 Series platform delivers the flexibility of OCP systems within current datacenter infrastructure to support easier evaluations and more scalable deployments. With flash memory solutions like ioScale, the Hyve Solutions OCP 1500 Series solution enables responsive, ultra low latency data transactions across cloud computing, online services, web hosting and other information economy businesses where high performance, cost-conscious solutions are essential to success.
“Hyperscale datacenters deliver powerful efficiency with lower total cost of opportunity, making it economically possible for cloud computing to transform businesses and even our society,” said Madhu Matta, Fusion-io vice president of Hyperscale. “From easier access to healthcare to music at our fingertips, cloud services improve quality of life for millions of people around the world. With open designs and integrated solutions like the Hyve 1500 OCP Series system, it is now even easier for companies to transform their datacenters and their businesses with efficient systems that operate at the speed of flash.”
“We’re thrilled to see companies like Fusion-io and Hyve Solutions working together to create powerful new computing solutions using OCP designs,” said Frank Frankovsky, president and chairman of the Open Compute Project Foundation. “Open systems that focus on performance, efficiency, and simplicity are exactly what we’re focused on enabling with OCP, and it’s exciting to see solutions like these become available to anyone who wants to consume them.”
