ioDrive Lifts DAS off the Canvas

Arthur Cole

Like Rocky (or Hillary Clinton), direct-attached storage (DAS) keeps getting up off the mat. Just as SAN and NAS solutions were making their way into even the smallest of networks, a new form of high-performance DAS hits the scene said to equal SAN performance at a fraction of the cost.

 

Fusion-io is about to start shipping its ioDrive, a PCIe card that provides either local storage or storage cache on workstations or at multiple points on a network. The NAND device provides access rates equal to DRAM and capacity in the 80 GB to 320 GB range of low-end to mid-range disk drives.

 

The company says the device eliminates the need for everything from Fibre Channel and iSCSI disks and switches, as well as RAID controllers, HBAs, caching appliances and most networking infrastructure.

 

Prices range from $2,400 for an 80 GB system to $8,900 for 320 GB.
