Fusion-io Unveils ioDrive2 SSD Card with Insane Data Speeds

 |  |  |  |  |  October 4, 2011

If you are the sort that has to have whatever the fastest storage is on the market – be it in the business setting or at home, the ioDrive2 is among the fastest you will find. This is a little PCIe slot SSD that has new specifications to make a blazing fast storage class memory device. The drive can be used for applications that need really fast speeds and low latency.


The ioDrive2 is available in multiple capacities with up to 2.4TB of storage available. The device has almost symmetrical read and write access according to Fusion-io. It has 15 microsecond latency and 3 GB/s of bandwidth with 700,000 read IOPS and 900,000 write IOPS.


The drive also has a new self-healing feature that will rewrite data lost if one or more chips fails, the data can be written to other chips without interrupting use. With super fast performance comes a huge price. The 365GB version starts at $5,950 (USD). It comes in 785GB, 1205GB, and 2.4TB. I can only imagine that the high-end capacity would be super expensive.
