Compression Test: Fusion-io ioDrive And ioXtreme
The following tests show performance levels if the data you're writing is not compressable.
Fusion-io ioDrive Unused
The freshly-reset and sanitized Fusion-io ioDrive delivers more than 700 MB/s reads and writes in a fresh state.
Fusion-io ioDrive Used
This also applies to the drive in a used condition. There is a performance drop below 700 MB/s, but it never dips under 600 MB/s, even if the data cannot be compressed very well. These are great results.
Fusion-io ioXtreme Unused
As the ioXtreme utilizes MLC flash memory instead of SLC NAND flash; it does not deliver the same impressive write performance as the ioDrive. However, reads are equally great for non-compressible data. Let’s look at the performance in a used state.
Fusion-io ioXtreme Used
Once again, Fusion-io maintains its performance level. Whether or not the used data can be compressed is irrelevant for these products.
