Fusion-io today announced that the ioFX workstation acceleration platform is now available with 1.6 TB of capacity, in addition to the original 420 GB form factor.
The new product has been designed for for video editing, computer assisted design (CAD), 4K and stereoscopic production, as well as digital intermediate (DI) finishing.
Based on the Fusion ioMemory platform, the 1.6 TB Fusion ioFX improves workstation application performance. The Fusion ioFX removes traditional data storage bottlenecks to allow high performance CPUs and graphics processing units (GPUs) to operate at their full potential.
Connecting via PCI Express, the ioFX is also available in a 420 GB capacity to provide artists with choice in selecting the ideal capacity for their applications.
Fusion ioMemory software enables Fusion-io products to deliver peak performance through an advanced operating system architecture that cuts through the latency introduced by hard drives and solid state disks. Fusion ioMemory products such as the ioFX also include Fusion ioSphere remote monitoring and management software, allowing IT teams to monitor and manage all Fusion-io solutions deployed throughout a studio from a single interface.
The 1.6 TB Fusion ioFX will be available in summer 2013. The 420 GB ioFX is available now from Fusion-io and Value Added Resellers around the world for a list price of $1995 USD.
