SanDisk Corporation Western Digital. From a functionality standpoint, the ioDrives all include indication LEDs that show the status of the drive from power up to power down. In other languages Deutsch Polski. At that time, it came in above the WarpDrive in Windows, which had the lowest curve out of the drives in this group. In this test performance of the ioDrive Duo peaked with a speed of , IOPS write at a queue depth of 4, leveling off between , to , IOPS between a queue depth of 8 to Since flash performance varies greatly as time goes on, our new benchmarking process analyzes the performance in areas including total throughput, average latency, peak latency, and standard deviation over the entire preconditioning phase of each device. Up until the highest loads, the ioDrive Duo in Windows maintained the lowest standard deviation, with the Linux driver following slightly behind, followed by the WarpDrive and then the Z-Drive R4 in Windows.

When it comes to testing enterprise hardware, the environment is just as important as the testing processes used to evaluate it. The benefits include faster file location lookups and even though ioMemory hits the CPU, its usage is highly efficient and actually drives performance by lowering transactional latency.

Fusion-io ioDrive installation on Windows Server 2012 R2

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. You have entered an incorrect email address! This contrasts with standard SSD controllers, where fundamental changes can only be made via fabricating windoes new controller.

Archived from the original on November 24, While the occasional high spikes might look discouraging, looking at the standard deviation latency plot we saw a much tamer latency profile of all of the devices except the Z-Drive R4 in Linux. The File Server standard deviation profile of both the ioDrive Duo and WarpDrive stayed fairly tight together in both Windows and Linux up until the higher effective queue depths.


We also included two legacy mixed workloads, including the traditional File Server and Webserver offering a wide mix of transfer sizes. The Fusion ioDrive Duo had the most similar performance between both Linux and Windows, although the edge of the Windowd driverset became more apparent as the drive hit steady-state. Both the ioDrive Duo and WarpDrive remained close together in the Web Server average latency test, although both were easily beaten by the R4 in Windows.

That is more than dindows 2x jump by sacrificing some user-capacity.

In this test performance of the ioDrive Duo peaked with a speed ofIOPS write at a queue depth of 4, leveling off betweentoIOPS between a queue depth of 8 to The WarpDrive came in next, with its Windows performance being higher in both burst wiindows steady-state modes.

The difference in standard deviation between the two over-provisioning modes was night and day, with the high-performance ioDrive Duo measuring 1. In other languages Deutsch Polski. The way we look at PCIe windws solutions dives deeper than just looking at traditional burst or steady-state performance.

Fusion-io ioDrive Duo Enterprise PCIe Review

Booting directly from the ioDrive is not possible due to the necessary driver. Thank you to Mark for all of your work on this. Archived from the original on It was somewhat surprising to see some of the higher latency spikes in the 1,ms range remained in the iovrive Web Server test, although while the behavior is seen the most ikdrive the ioDrive Duo in Linux, it was noted on all three devices at different points in the test.

The entire review is posted below in a single page, as always, for reader convenience. Given the consistent standard deviation though, many of those blips were few time events, instead of consistently hitting higher response rates. Our last workload is rather unique in the way we analyze the preconditioning phase of the test version the main output.


To prevent damage, the ioDrive is designed to throttle performance if it reaches an internal temp of 78C and power off at 85C.

The improvement of 4K write latency that we originally observed in the preconditioning phase averaged out to 2. As part of StorageReview’s continued advancements in both testing protocol and enterprise lab development, we’re taking a renewed look at first generation flash drives that we have previously reviewed. Samsung ZET Review. This page was last idrive on 14 Januaryat Switching to a ramped 4K random write test, the ioDrive Duo showed a similar performance profile, beating the other competing models at lower queue depths.

Fusion-io ioDrive installation – Windows – firmware – ServeTheHome

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved November 21, To get the firmware:.

With that said, they weren’t entirely gone, but the bulk of the activity dropped to much lower levels. Below readers will find over windoas charts dedicated to analyzing the ioDrive Duo nearly to the point of minutia; and this doesn’t even include the new series of application-level benchmarks that are under development.

After installing the Fusion-io card into server,Windows Server R2 does not recognize the drive by default.

How the StorageReview team evaluates enterprise storage continues to evolve, thanks to continued input from industry leaders and key partners.
