It's no secret that Data IO is one of the key performance bottlenecks in database performance. When read and write operations are passed to a SAN, latency is measured in milliseconds, which can degrade performance. The HP Data Accelerator Solution for Oracle, as designed by Fusion-io dramatically increases IO performance by putting reads and writes closer to the CPU on the PCI bus. At Oracle Open World 2011, LockerGnome's Jake Ludington talks with Gary Orenstein from Fusion-io about the HP Data Accelerator and how it improves Oracle database performance. With up to 12TB of high performance flash memory, the Data Accelerator can improve IO on virtually any Oracle database configuration.
