Fusion-io and Sqrrl Accelerate Big Data Performance and Accessibility for Government Organizations

Flash Memory and Big Data Software Leaders Team Up to Make Applications Faster, More Secure, and More Cost Effective

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) today announced that it is teaming up with leading software provider Sqrrl to deliver breakthrough acceleration for secure big data workloads. Powered by Apache Accumulo and Hadoop, the big data platform Sqrrl Enterprise is a secure and scalable NoSQL database for real-time big data applications. By integrating Sqrrl Enterprise and Fusion ioMemory, database architects can simplify development and scale up an Accumulo big data system to accelerate performance with up to ten times more density while saving on costs that can otherwise break agency budgets.

"Fusion-io provides breakthrough performance improvements and cost savings for big data technology deployments," said Ely Kahn, Vice President of Business Development for Sqrrl. "By bringing our solutions together, we have created an innovative architecture that is fast, secure, and cost effective.  Together, the Fusion-io and Sqrrl solution can help more organizations make better decisions backed by powerful real-time big data applications."

Apache Accumulo is a powerful NoSQL database used throughout the federal government and by various industries, such as healthcare, finance, and telecommunications. Sqrrl Enterprise extends the capabilities of Accumulo with additional management, security, and real-time analytical features.  A conventional Accumulo-based system typically relies on costly Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) for performance. In addition to the physical limit to how much DRAM can be added to any system, servers built with very large DRAM configurations can quickly exceed most budgets. Unlike persistent NAND flash memory, DRAM does not retain data in the event of an unexpected power loss.

Providing significantly more performance at a fraction of the cost of high-density DRAM systems, the Accumulo solution powered by Fusion ioMemory also consumes significantly less power per gigabyte. The flash system enables government agencies and other organizations to significantly reduce capital and operational costs associated with scaled-out DRAM and disk-based deployments.

Testing documented in the white paper "Fusion-io and Sqrrl Make Accumulo Supersonic" found that the ioMemory and Apache Accumulo system maintained an average of 48,000 transactions per second, compared to only 4,759 transactions per second in the DRAM and disk system. In addition, the ioMemory-based solution resulted in eight times lower latency compared to traditional architectures, delivering microsecond access times for random workloads.

While traditional Accumulo systems may utilize 128GB of DRAM to cache the working data set, an ioMemory-equipped server can support 12.8TB or more data. This ensures the entire dataset is microseconds away from the server CPU. Each ioMemory device can support 1.5GB/s of bandwidth and hundreds of thousands of transactions per second with reliable, predictable performance.

"From predicting weather patterns to managing national security, the public sector relies on big data more than ever before to make decisions that affect millions of people," said Christian Shrauder, Fusion-io Federal CTO. "Fusion-io is pleased to work with Sqrrl to provide a secure platform based on ioMemory and Accumulo-powered Sqrrl Enterprise to meet the highly demanding government data requirements with an architecture that expands access to information that could improve or even save lives around the world."
