Fusion-io announced that it is collaborating with HP to integrate the Fusion ioFX memory tier into the HP Z820, Z620 and Z420 Workstations. According to the company, the integrated solutions will offer ideal development platforms for professional artists in visual effects, upstream exploration of oil and gas, digital content creation (DCC) and computer-aided design (CAD).
In addition, professionals interested in adding the Fusion ioFX to their current HP Workstation can purchase the ioFX as a custom integration component.
“I consider HP one of the best engineering companies in the world, so I’m thrilled to see HP and Fusion-io working together to advance workstation computing architectures,” said Steve Wozniak, Fusion-io Chief Scientist. “The Fusion ioFX brings the intelligence of the Fusion-io approach to HP’s incredible workstations, adding even more powerful application performance to the precision engineering HP is known for around the world.”
The new solution will integrate the Fusion ioFX into the HP Z Workstations with Intel Xeon processors. Tuned for sustained performance in multithreaded applications, the solution enables artists to work on 2K, 4K and 5K content interactively, in full resolution, as well as to manipulate stereoscopic content in real time.
