How Fusion-io Makes The World's Data Go Faster

Fusion-io exec describes how the company's hardware and software enable data center managers to build faster, more cost-effective storage arrays, in the latest episode of Valley View.

Gary Orenstein, Fusion-io's senior VP of product, says his company's purpose is to make the world's data go faster. Data is everywhere--the cloud, the Web--but it's on disk, which is too slow for many of today's demanding data needs. With Fusion-io's IoDrives and Ion Data Accelerator software, data center managers can build solid-state, flash-based storage arrays across physical and virtual servers more cost effectively. And it does so with a smaller footprint, which is crucial in today's data center.

Orenstein says Fusion-io is doing lots of work in organizations using Oracle, Microsoft, and MySQL databases, and is also starting to see some big data deployments using MongoDB.

Orenstein boiled all of this down into his 3-minute elevator pitch on Valley View recently and came out shining in front of our judges. You can watch it all in the video embedded below.

Make sure to tune into our October Valley View, on October 24 at 11 a.m. Pacific Time, where we'll have more startups--including Taptera (enterprise mobile applications), Alteryx (big data), and Hearsay Social (social enterprise). We'll also feature conversations with Cisco CEO John Chambers, and Oracle president Mark Hurd. You can also register for the October Valley View show and have a chance to win some excellent gear.

Blast from the Past
What a journey Fusion-io has taken since this post!  What is sad is that now under the covers of SanDisk, Fusion-io is likely to vanish into the dark space that is corporate marketing verbiage, no longer a cool independent tech project.  The Fusion ioMemory technology product pages at SanDisk barely hint at the exciting history and evolution of the tech.  Sad.  Hopefully the Linux kernel contribution by Axboe and Shaohua Li will not fade away as well.

CVE-2020-15208
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, when determining the common dimension size of two tensors, TFLite uses a `DCHECK` which is no-op outside of debug compilation modes. Since the function always returns the dimension of the first tensor, malicious attackers can ...
CVE-2020-15209
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, a crafted TFLite model can force a node to have as input a tensor backed by a `nullptr` buffer. This can be achieved by changing a buffer index in the flatbuffer serialization to convert a read-only tensor to a read-write one....
CVE-2020-15210
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, if a TFLite saved model uses the same tensor as both input and output of an operator, then, depending on the operator, we can observe a segmentation fault or just memory corruption. We have patched the issue in d58c96946b and ...
CVE-2020-15211
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, saved models in the flatbuffer format use a double indexing scheme: a model has a set of subgraphs, each subgraph has a set of operators and each operator has a set of input/output tensors. The flatbuffer format uses indices f...
CVE-2020-15212
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, models using segment sum can trigger writes outside of bounds of heap allocated buffers by inserting negative elements in the segment ids tensor. Users having access to `segment_ids_data` can alter `output_index` and then write to outside of `outpu...
