How fast is it?

"When we used traditional hard disk drives in our environment, we were often hours behind. The data just was not consistent across the SQL environment. Now that we have moved to Fusion ioMemory™ SX300 PCIe cards, it’s real time." 1

Owen Morley

Director of Infrastructure


"Fusion ioMemory PCIe application accelerators have made our customers more successful. This product has made our service more reliable and has allowed us to be up—always. That has made the difference that’s allowed me to win the 500 biggest companies in the world, and to be a global business that really delights customers." 2

Server storage can be complex. Help your customers understand their options.

Storage drives: pros and cons

Different businesses need different storage products and configurations.

Dell and SanDisk sponsored storage drive content:


A relatively inexpensive way to store lots of data.

Spinning disks want more power than SSDs, have higher rates of failure than SSDs, and won’t read or write data as fast as SSDs.

Solid state drives (SSDs)

Replacing standard HDDs with this option can bump application speeds.

SATA SSDs top out at 6 Gbps and need to stay close to the nearest innerconnect or they experience signal integrity issues—so they’re not ideal in external storage environments.

This option takes advantage of 12Gbps bandwidth and can deliver high reliability and 1.6 million hour MTBF.

You may still run into disk bottlenecks.

PCIe SSDs/ SanDisk application accelerators

This advanced technology connects storage directly to the PCIe bus and delivers the fastest performance and lowest latencies currently available.

Initial costs are higher than other SSD options, but analysis shows they can pay for themselves quickly. These application accelerators are a smart business decision.

SanDisk TCO Calculator

What makes application accelerators a good fit for your customers?

"Imagine that server storage is like the supply warehouse for a small retail shop. To keep the shelves stocked, workers must retrieve products from a storage location.

HDDs would be like using a hand truck to transport items from a warehouse down the road—doable but slow. SATA or SAS SSDs would be like using a car to retrieve the same goods—the process would be much faster but the distance would be the same.

With SanDisk Fusion ioMemory PCIe application accelerators, the storage area is on site in a back room. Data is stored much closer to where the computing happens, so applications retrieve it much more quickly." 3
