Earlier this month, Violin Memory released a Memory Services software suite for acceleration, tiering, migration and protection of application data in the enterprise data center. 

The Violin Maestro suite of Memory Services, which runs on memory-optimized, hardware-accelerated Violin Memory Appliances, provides non-disruptive migration of data off legacy storage to high performance Violin Memory Arrays. The company said its software transparently learns application I/O patterns and accelerates performance.  The software provides dynamic tiering of application data between Memory Tier and disk storage.
