"Fusion-io Unleashes CPUs, Reduces I/O Bottleneck to Accelerate StatSoft
Data Analysis Software"
White Paper from StatSoft Details 300-500% Performance Improvements and
Latency Reductions in Testing Fusion ioMemory with STATISTICA Software
July 28, 2011
"... today announced that StatSoft, provider of a comprehensive
array of data analysis, data management, data visualization and
data mining technologies, recently tested Fusion's ioMemory platform
with its flagship STATISTICA software, comparing Fusion ioDrives
to disk-based storage components."
"The StatSoft white paper concluded that Fusion ioDrives significantly
increased the I/O performance in the STATISTICA suite of analytics
software products and solutions, greatly increasing CPU utilization
and efficiency. With ioMemory, StatSoft achieved 300 and 500 percent
data performance and latency reduction improvements when compared
to legacy disk-based storage. With the increased I/O performance
enabled by the Fusion ioDrives, CPU utilization increased to 90 percent
in tests of large data sets, versus the 32 percent CPU utilization
observed with the disk-based technology."
"STATISTICA Performance with Fusion ioDrive."
"Testing was performed using the ioDrive 160GB Single Level Cell (SLC)
card, run on a 2.20GHz AMD Phenom 9550 Quad-Core Processor running
64-bit Vista Business with 8GB of RAM, configured with Samsung HD103UJ
SCSI disk rotating at 7200 RPM."
"The tests ran in two categories:
1. Analyzing large spreadsheets
2. Extensive TEMP directory access"
