ioDrive Octal takes SSD performance to a new level

1TB/s of sustained bandwidth on tap

Ground breaking storage specialist ioDrive has come forward again with a new milestone in storage technology having being reached, introducing the new Octal which is said to be capable of delivering a whopping 1TB/s sustained bandwith.

As the ioDrive Octal is designed to fit into a PCI Express x16 slot (with double width space available), this also allows the drive to reduce rack space in servers as well as power and cooling costs, whilst also saturating the full available performance from the x16 slot.

The incredible specifications are possible thanks to the use of eight ioMemory modules, delivering similar performance to eight ioDrives, but in a single card.

 

• 800,000 IOPS (4k packet size)
• 6 GB/s bandwidth
• 5 TB maximum capacity
• x16 Gen-2 double-wide PCI Express form factor
