  "Fusion-io, provider of a next-generation shared data decentralization
   platform, today announced that its technology has been utilized to
   realize significant performance improvements in MySQL database queries
   for bioinformatics research. The Protein Data Bank (PDB) research is
   being conducted at the University of California, San Diego, in
   collaboration with the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC).
   Researchers at SDSC noted that replacing hard drive disks (HDDs) with
   Fusion-io technology in their database infrastructure reduced query
   times from 30 minutes to three minutes."

  "Using Fusion's server-deployed technologies, researchers were able to
   reduce the time required to conduct complex MySQL database queries that
   determine relationships between proteins and the effects proteins can
   have on each other. Using traditional hard drive disks, a query
   analyzing more than 200 million protein structures took 30 minutes."
