For this reason we turned to our StorageMark traces, which include consumer traces covering HTPC, Productivity, and Gaming scenarios and now business traces starting off with a new mail-server scenario to help our readers find out how well a drive might perform under their conditions. As noted in the design section with the external power adapter, all benchmarks were performed with the external adapter connected. Our second real-life test covers disk activity in a productivity scenario. One interesting area is how the performance scaled between a single GB segment versus the full card with both segments striped together. We put a GB Duo to work to see if lives up to the promises of speed, speed and more speed.

For benchmark purposes we always tested the card with external power available. As noted in the design section with the external power adapter, all benchmarks were performed with the external adapter connected.

By listing the smaller transfer size you can, in effect, get much larger IOPS measurements from the drive…although it makes it difficult to compare against other manufacturers.

With the release of Linux kernel version 3. They’re public, so there’s plenty of detail about their financials, sales figures and the like, but a tour through their website yields precious little about the products they offer.

The setup of the Fusion-io ioDrive Duo iosrive pretty straight forward. The Fusion-io ioDrive Duo offers top-level performance for nothing short of top-dollar price. That’s probably because the sales process for enterprise SSDs of this nature requires a lot of hands on work; natural considering a single order could easily surpass the tens of thousands of dollars.

In the 4K read test, we were able to reach a high ofIOPS, versus 50, in the lower queue depth test. While far from being an optimal enterprise-class test, it was interesting to see how the Fusion-io ioDrive Duo performed using CrystalDiskMark.

The heatsinks are setup that when installed in a server environment where air is pulled through the chassis, they are all in-line to have air flow over the cooling fins. No official numbers are stated about this performance difference or how much above 25 watts the card may need to function at its highest speeds. Archived from the original PDF on May 9, It also doesn’t make sense to assume that a drive with very high sequential speeds is going to perform great in the real-world if it can’t cope with mixed random activity.

The New York Times. Even with its stellar performance, we have issue with the ways particular features or specifications were conveyed on this product. Retrieved June 3, Expanding our 4K read and write test out in our ramped queue depth benchmark, we did see some higher maximum IOPS figures. We captured the activity of our StorageReview mail server over a period of a few days.

Archived from the original on November 15, A fourth trace we are debuting with the Fusion-io ioDrive Duo review is an enterprise trace that covers a Microsoft Exchange mail-server environment. To fully saturate the card we had to increase the load through multiple managers and workers in IOMeter as well as handle stressing both GB segments at the same time.

We also have a new enterprise trace that we’ll roll iosrive after the client-focused tests. Fusion-io the company is depl bit of a mystery, and maybe purposely so.

The webserver profile is read-only. All components are in full view without needing to dismantle the drive, and considering the price-point we opted to leave the card pretty much as-is. This helps support the card in some mounting environments and gives it a nice finished appearance.

In our gaming trace the ioDrive came in at the top and bottom depending on its configuration. A scalable multi-queue block layer for the Linux kernel was developed by Fusion-io engineers Axboe and Shaohua Li, and merged into the Linux kernel mainline in kernel version 3.

Last Drivers

As a prequel to my upcoming FusionIO performance benchmarking articles I thought I would quickly demonstrate how easy it is to install the FusionIO drivers for VMware ESXi.

First you need to download the drivers from https://support.fusionio.com/downloads , you will need to register to access the support website.

Once you login you need to click the Downloads button and you will see the “Identify Product” section appear similar to the below. Select “IODrive2” , The suitable VMware ESXi version, and for option 3, the latest version.

Then you should see the below available downloads.

The file you need is the “Fusion-IO_libvsl-offline-bundle-%version%” file which is under “Utilities”.

Download the file and extract the zip file, and you should see similar to the below.

Now we need to either copy the vib file to a datastore OR use something like WinSCP to copy the file to the host.

The easiest way in my opinion is to copy the file to a datastore via vSphere client.

To do this, goto the “configuration” tab for your ESXi host/s , select “storage” under the “Hardware” section, then select your datastore.

Now right click the datastore and select “Browse Datastore”

Once in your datastore, click this icon and you will see the below appear.

Select the VIB file and press “Open”

The file should now upload, and you will see a progress window like the below.

Once the file is in your datastore, make note of the path assuming you didn’t use the root of the datastore.

Now click “Security Profile” under the “Software” section (see below).

Now click “Properties” for the “Firewall” and you will see the below appear.

Ensure “SSH Server” is ticked like the above and press Ok.

Your now ready to SSH to your ESXi host using a program such as PuTTY.

Open PuTTY, enter the IP or hostname for your ESXi host, select SSH (Port 22) and press Connect.

You will be prompted for credentials, I am using “root” in this example.

After entering your credentials, you should see the below screen.

Now we use “esxcli” to install the VIB by using the following command

“esxcli software vib install -v /vmfs/volumes/*DATASTORENAME*/Fusionio_bootbank_block-iomemory-vsl_3.1.5.126-1OEM.500.0.0.472560.vib”

Once Installed, you should see something similar to the below.

Now to verify the driver has installed, we can use the “esxcli software vib list” command which should give us a result similar to the below.

Now if the driver appears like the above, reboot your host.

Once you have rebooted, SSH back to your host, and we now need to format the FusionIO card.

To do this use the below command.

Now you should be able to open the vSphere client, select your host and goto the configuration tab, Select “Storage Adapters” and you should see the FusionIO card show up like the below.

Now you can return to the “Storage” menu and use “add Storage” too format the card with VMFS.

Now your ready to use your FusionIO card.
