“Before Fusion ioMemory, our site crashed every time we had a big promotion. After we installed Fusion ioMemory, our site experienced its highest traffic ever without a hitch.
Migrating our SQL Server databases to Fusion ioMemory removed the disk bottleneck. The whole system is now more stable and nimble. Even the biggest promotion in history had no issues.”
