    Actually, it would be more like 60, not 6.
    And an SSD is FAR faster than a Raptor. There is no comparison.

    Nyaaah, it all boils down to the peak transfer rate. This devices gives a peak transfer-rate of 800 MB/s. Now compare this with a SATA II RAID 0 array of four drives, that will have a theoritical bandwidth of 1200 MB/s. :cool:

    300Mbps is burst rate, no single drive can sustain that speed. You have been fooled by marketing.;)

    The Fusion-io (and most SSD in general) = all-around great performance. Sequential/random reads/writes at various block sizes - it's all good.

    With mechanical drives and RAID you can tune for one thing usually at the expense of another. Number of drives, stripe size, RAID level, the drive itself (cache, rpm, etc), and the sizes of the files, the controller being used, and so on, all play a part in performance.

    My point being... you could build an array with mechanical disks for sequential speed meeting or even exceeding the Fusion-io, but only in that situation.

    Did anyone see the online Video?

    Please look at the online video, the card can process over 100,000 request per second, this is for use in replacing 1000's of hard drives to feed one server in high volume request websites or companies file servers. To lazy to find the link. So work at it a little, lmao

    The average maxium hard drive I/O request is about 100 per hard drive, designed to over come the hard drive bottle neck. not for morons at home.

    This will descrease SAN's and etc or other array's of disks to feed a single server.

    So the m@r@n that did not understand high I/O output, rethink your use of this device.

    And look at fusion-io website, please flame me!!!!! lmao

    Insulting people is a great way to get an infraction, especially on your first post.
    If you needed to do it in order to properly form an arguement you are a sad individual.

    Nice forum name btw :D

    As for "high I/O output", awesome literary redundancy there. Input Output Output ftw!

    the was to point the sad fact that people degraded a product before they understood such a great product that moves technology ahead 5 years this minute.

    This is not for home user, and was not intended for that use, everyone degraded, not that I really care, I actually spent the time to understand the product, did you?

    Whats to understand?
    Its just a hard drive using a different medium.

    To say that everyone degraded the product is just a good way of saying that you didnt read what people posted, since not everyone said the product was bad, and several people in fact did point out the good points of the device over existing technology.

    Just because its not intended for home users doesnt mean it wont be used by them. Look at SCSI drives for example. And Fusionio's CTO even stated “If you were crazy enough, you could use this in a high end game machine.”

    I saw a demo for these drives at Linux World this year in SF. Despite having the most attractive employees, a hard drive bull riding competition, and a loud PA, they had proof of the incredible speed and reliability by means of a Stargate SG-1 demo. They played every episode of Stargate SG-1 (200 episodes) of DVD quality all off of 1 Fusion-IO SSD drive, simultaneously. I spoke with their rep a couple of times at the expo and the company confidently convinced me that SSD is worth having. I will be likely setting these completely silent, fast, and reliable drives up in a recording studio within a year.

    Where can one buy the Fusion IO Drive in Europe? We are based in the France and then only places I found were

    SSDeurope.com

    and

    http://www.ssdisk.eu

    The ioDrive wasn't too expensive .. eur 2900 for 119.000 IOPS, but wanted to check if prices are alright or you know another company who sells them?

    IBM and HP I think have them too, but they tend to be expensive...

    Thanks

    Sergey...
