SALT LAKE CITY and BEIJING, Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fusion-io (NYSE:
FIO) today announced that Alibaba Group company Alipay, China's leading third
party online payment system, scaled its datacenter servers with the newly
available Fusion ioScale to support the equivalent of a world record $3.06
billion dollars USD in one-day online sales on Singles Day 2012, China's
largest shopping day of the year. Alipay processed 105.8 million payments on
the 'single digit' day of November 11, 2012 (11/11), with a quarter of
shoppers making purchases from mobile accounts.

"Alipay's outstanding success showcases that they are a world leader in
designing e-commerce architecture to meet customer demand for flexible
shopping from any screen," said Neil Carson, Fusion-io Chief Technology
Officer. "The Alipay team delivers services that integrate payment seamlessly
with the shopping experience, and shoppers trust they can securely use Alipay
to quickly and easily make their purchases online. With Fusion ioScale
products in Alipay servers, databases can respond at the speeds needed to meet
demand even when breaking world records for one-day sales."

With a user base of over 800 million accounts, Alipay is a preferred online
payment tool of customers and Internet merchants thanks to its flexible user
experience and rapid, secure service across screens from desktops to tablets
to smartphones. In addition to the leading Chinese retail websites Taobao and
Alibaba.com, Alipay provides payment solutions in China for more than 450,000
external merchants for online retail, virtual gaming, digital communications,
commercial services, air ticketing and utilities fee payment transactions. On
Alibaba Group websites alone, the Alipay infrastructure supported three times
more Singles Day sales than the record-breaking one billion dollars comScore
reported was spent online on Black Friday 2012 in the United States.

"With the speed and convenience of payment services like Alipay, Chinese
customers are rapidly embracing e-commerce as a primary shopping channel,"
said Jingming Li, Alipay Chief Technology Officer. "Customers are also
becoming increasingly mobile, as one in four made purchases on Alibaba Group
websites from a tablet or smartphone this year, compared to one in six last
year. Our team is very proud that even when supporting unprecedented traffic,
our scalable architecture ensured customers could make payments for goods and
services without delay."

Now available in minimum order quantities of 100 units, the Fusion ioScale
provides up to 3.2 terabytes of Fusion ioMemory performance tuned for the
unique needs of hyperscale environments. Alipay deployed Fusion ioScale in its
servers to accelerate its Oracle and MySQL databases.
