ioDrive Octal

ioDrive OctalThe ioDrive Octal from Fusio-IO is currently the fastest storage solution on the market, with read speeds of up to 6,000MB/s and write speeds of up to 4,400MB/s over the PCI Express x16 Gen2.0 interface. It is primarily targeted at professional uses such as server farms and data centers that need to move around data at extreme speeds. The SSD is compatible with 64-Bit Microsoft XP, Vista, Win7, Windows Server 2003/2008, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 4/5/6, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 10/11, Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) 5, and VMware ESX 4.0/4.1/ESXi 4.1.

Similarly, the IOPS figures are the highest in the industry; Read IOPS at the 512 B level is 1,190,000, Write IOPS (512 B) 1,180,000 and 75/25 Mix IOPS (512 B) is 729,000. The drive uses MLC (multi-level cell) NAND flash memory modules.

As the name implies, these performance figures are reached by combining eight of the manufacturer’s ioDrives on a single (double width) PCIe X16 card.

Capacities and pricing are currently TBA.
