To test the drive in situations where a partition was required to be in place, we formatted a single side of the SSD or striped section combining each SSD using Windows.

It also doesn’t make sense to assume that a drive with very high sequential speeds is going to perform great in the real-world if it can’t iodrice with mixed random activity. In the expanded 4K write test, speeds spiked as high asIOPS on the top end, doubling compared to the first test.

Fusion-io claims a maximum of 1. The setup of the Fusion-io ioDrive Duo is pretty straight forward. For this reason we turned to our StorageMark traces, which include consumer traces covering HTPC, Productivity, and Gaming scenarios and now business traces starting off depl a iodrivs mail-server scenario to help our readers find out how well a drive might perform under their conditions. If your enterprise needs even more performance iodrivs a single PCIe slot, then there’s the Fusion-io ioDrive Duo, which basically doubles down on performance.

Archived from the original on The card will still function without the additional power hookup, but Fusion-io states that maximum write throughput may increase with external power available.


In the 4K read test, we were able to reach a high ofIOPS, versus 50, in the lower queue depth test. The method we came up with which allowed us to still work with the drive in an unformatted setup was to have one manager and two workers interfaced with a 5GB LBA size on one card and one manager and iodirve workers interfaced with the same on the other card.

Tintri releases TGC 4.

Write latency was excellent in our tests, measuring 0. One interesting area is how the performance scaled between a single GB segment versus the full card with both segments striped together. The trace captures the heavy read activity of each game loading from the start, as well as textures as the game progresses.

Iodive the consumer or business user, trying to translate high random 4K write speeds into an everyday situation is pretty difficult.

Views Read Edit View history. Archived from the original on April 5, Archived from the original on September 25, With almost all SSD manufacturers listing 4K-sector speeds on drives, it will be hard for a customer to cross-shop between drives when comparing 4K figures to byte.

Another concern is how power requirements come into play, since Fusion-io mentions the drive will conform to the PCIe 2. This helps support the card in some mounting environments and gives it a nice finished appearance.

The first real-life test is our HTPC scenario. In February Fusion-io hired Apple Inc. In this test we include: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Ddell from the original on November 24, As we mentioned at the beginning of the performance section, we split tests into single GB tests and GB striped tests for the ioDrive to show how it performs in both situations.

Archived from the original on October 14, In JuneSanDisk announced its intentions to buy Fusion-io. The ioDrive Duo performed much better comparatively in our Productivity trace, coming in first when striped and third with only half the card working.

In our gaming trace the ioDrive came in at the top and bottom depending on its configuration. For all intents and purposes this test shows drive performance under normal daily activity for most users.

They’re public, so there’s plenty of detail about their financials, sales figures and the like, but a tour through their website yields precious little about the products they offer.
