Fusion-IO 2.4TB SSDs on the way

/ 7 years ago

The Japanese company Fusion-IO has announced the latest in its ioDrive series. The ioDrive2 offers greatly improved performance over the previous generation. There will be two main variants of the ioDrive2 SSDs, the ioDrive2 and the ioDrive2Duo. They are both based off MLC flash which is an interesting move as enterprise grade solid state drives are normally based off SLC flash (Single Level Cell flash is more reliable than Multi Level Cell flash because there is more room for error correction). The drives offer impressive performance:

  • 3072MB/s or 3GB/s in bandwidth
  • 900K Write IOPS
  • 850K Read IOPS
  • 365 GB, 785 GB, 1205 GB and 2.4 TB capacities
  • “Adaptive FlashBack” self-repairing cell technology
  • 0.000015ms or 15 microsecond response time/latency

Plus the ioDrive2 SSDs will bring support for all the latest and most used enteprise operating systems such as Windows, Linux, OSX, Solaris x86, ESXi 5.0 and HP-UX. If we tell you that their first generation ioDrive Duo 1280GB drive cost around £20000, then you can probably assume that these new generation drives won’t be cheap. Fusion-IO didn’t specify but expect these to come with a 5 year warranty.
