Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. In this we limit effective queue depth to 8 in the weaker profile and increase it to 48 in the Heavy profile. We also included two legacy mixed workloads, including the traditional File Server and Webserver offering a wide mix of transfer sizes. Be the first to review this item. The card will still function without the additional power hookup, but Fusion-io states that maximum write throughput may increase with external power available. We split the standard synthetic IOMeter testing portion of this review into two parts. The ioDrive Duo performed much better comparatively in our Productivity trace, coming in first when striped and third with only half the card working.

All devices tested go under the same testing policy from start to finish. Loading recommendations for this item It was somewhat surprising to see some of the higher latency spikes in the 1,ms range remained in the read-intensive Web Server test, although while the behavior is seen the most on the ioDrive Duo in Linux, it was noted on all three devices at different points in the test.

Another minor area of concern might be found depending on platform, as Linux tended to be this product’s strong suit, even if it only slightly edged out its Windows performance. Of course the stock-capacity ioDrive Duo isn’t without its weaknesses, as seen by its frequent 1,ms blips in low and high queue depth tests when in steady-state.

To decide which option makes the most sense for an installation, Fusion-io has a server configuration guide for most tier one servers that provides best case setup instructions.

Fusion-io – Wikipedia

Average latency was near identical across the board, showing little iodriv of improving with additional over-provisioning. Its very hard to find performance figures listed for this drive, consistent warranty information through resellers, and how power requirements macome into play with drive speed.


The New York Times. We also included two legacy mixed workloads, including the traditional File Server and Webserver offering a wide mix of transfer sizes.

Archived from the original on June 28, From an ease of use perspective, the ioDrive Duo sets the standard for how dou PCIe Application Accelerator should be presented to the end user. We have also added performance comparisons to show how each device performs under a different driver set across both Windows iosrive Linux operating systems.

With the smallest workloads, the ioDrive Duo came in again with the fastest speeds, although it was quickly surpassed by the Z-Drive R4 once the effective queue depth increased. The most telling chart showing the dramatic improvement of the ioDrive Duo in high performance mode through is the latency standard deviation profile.

Warranty & Support

Our last workload is rather unique in the way we analyze the preconditioning phase of the test version the main output. Iodrivr Cart Proceed to checkout. Comparing the Windows and Linux driver environments, the ioDrive Duo offered a near parity in performance throughout the entire workload.

Our last group of standard synthetic benchmarks looks at scaled performance using our server profiles in IOMeter.

This can be anything from the total amount of information transmitted to or from the device to what the current power draw is through the PCIe bus. The Fusion ioDrive Duo had the most similar performance between both Linux and Windows, although the edge of the Linux driverset became more apparent as the drive hit iofrive.

DEMO Fall conference dul information. English Choose a language for shopping. Fusion-io lists a recommended airflow of LFM, with an ambient temperature below 55C. Conclusion When it comes down to living up to the claims of speed, speed, and more speed, the GB Fusion-io ioDrive Duo hit the mark on all counts. To really see how drives perform under normal work-loads you need to record the exact traffic being passed to and from the device, iodeive then use that to compare drives against one another.


In steady-state measurement of high-load 4K read and 4K write, the OCZ Z-Drive R4 with its class-leading throughput speeds in Windows came in at the front, with an average latency of 4. The Fusion ioDrive Duo didn’t see as much of an improvement in total throughput by increasing the amount of over-provisioning. Analyzing the average latency over our varying load test, the Z-Drive R4 came out on top with the quickest response times on average as the activity picked up in our test.

These re-reviews of early PCIe flash storage devices gave us the opportunity to refine and re-calibrate our enterprise review process before rolling out new reviews of second generation PCIe storage cards and application accelerators. For Linux, we use bit CentOS 6.

Fusion-io ioDrive Duo SSDs: up to 1.28TB of stupid-fast storage

Archived from the original PDF on May 9, We ship same day up until 3pm Pacific Standard time every business day. Amazon Dui Cloud storage from Amazon.

The LSI WarpDrive showed a significant spread in average latency between driversets, with the Windows driver offering the iorive performance. Looking at max latency in the Web Server preconditioning curve, the Z-Drive R4 had the highest peaks, but once it leveled off it maintained a fewer amount of high-latency spikes.
