Fusion-IO, Inc. : Host Europe Virtualizes Gaming Databases in the Cloud with Fusion-io

02/13/2012 | 11:56am US/Eastern

SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 13, 2012/PRNewswire/ -- Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) today announced that Host Europe GmbH, a leading European managed cloud service provider and part of the Host Europe Group, has deployed Fusion ioMemory technology in its data centers to dramatically reduce infrastructure and costs while increasing virtualized database performance capabilities and extending savings to customers.

"Fusion ioMemory maintains consistent performance regardless of database workload fluctuations, even with massively parallel virtual machines and database virtualization. This allows us to guarantee high service levels to all applications, under any load, so we don't have to scale out excess infrastructure in anticipation of load spikes that might cause servers to crash or interrupt application service," said Thomas Ebbers, Head of Product Management for Host Europe. "Our Fusion-io solution will help all of Host Europe's customers, not only for providing a better service experience, but also because we've even been able to offer more competitive pricing to our customers since implementing Fusion-io."

More than one million customers trust the professional hosting services of the Host Europe Group in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the UK, USAand Spain. As an application's popularity increases, the Host Europe infrastructure can experience rapid spikes in demand. With traditional storage and SSDs that cannot deliver low application queue depth, the virtualized system experienced unpredictable workloads that could not be managed consistently and cost effectively. Host Europedeployed ioMemory technology to help eliminate virtualized MySQL database bottlenecks, reduce server sprawl and efficiently scale to meet demand. Once Fusion ioMemory was integrated into its servers, Host Europe realized up to five times more workloads per server on a customer's popular massively multiplayer online social game. The Fusion-io platform enabled Host Europe to virtualize multiple databases, resulting in a 30 percent reduction in overall hardware requirements.  

"Emerging trends like cloud computing and virtualization require innovative new solutions to be able to scale with rapid spikes in demand such as with a popular online game like those delivered by Host Europe," said Neil Carson, CTO of Fusion-io. "As a game goes viral, or when many people log on for peak playing times, traditional systems can be stressed, which forces companies to sprawl out traditional data centers at high cost to customers and greater impact on providers' bottom lines. The innovative team at Host Europe has found an ideal way to maintain its competitive edge and commitment to outstanding customer service with ioMemory."
