The ioDrive represents nothing short of a fundamental rethinking of storage and storage architecture. Leveraging new advances in solid state design and manufacturing that is far ahead of any other companies in the solid state market today.

* The power of 1000 hard drives in the palm of your hand [:kentuckyranger:1]
* The performance of a multi-rack disk array in a single PCIe card [:mousemonkey:1]
* RAM like performance with non volatile disk like capacity [:mousemonkey:1]
* Over 80,000 IOPS of random 8k packets - Sustained [:mousemonkey:1]
* 700MB per second of bandwidth - Sustained [:mousemonkey:1]

ioDrive pricing starts at only :pt1cable:  $2,400 :ouch:  :ouch:  :ouch: 

Has anybody heard any new more recent regarding this drive. The newest thing I could find was from late September/ Early November 2007, since then I haven't heard anything else about it, if anybody knows anything or heard about something new about the fusion io drive then please by all means do tell, do tell! :hello:

Probably won't see many reviews until they have Windows drivers which were supposed tp be ready by next months. But at $30 per GB, I don't think they will be sending out a lotta comp samples to reviewers.

Yeah i saw that, I hope it will come down to like $10 a GB then offer like a 40GB version, that would be pretty sweet.

The cards are actually going to other direction. They are increasing capacity wit their new ioDrive Duo Cards. They essentially provide two 320Gb Banks and integrated RAID 0 or RAID 1. Giving you either 640GB or 320GB Mirrored.

the 320gb version is $13k and mlc based
the 160gb version was 7k

they just released a version for hp c class blades ( trying to talk hp into letting me demo this).


if i had 3grand burning a hole in my pocket i'd go with 4x x25-e's over the iodrive on everything but the heaviest use DB servers or space constrained blade servers.
