Customers have grown to expect nothing but groundbreaking products from Fusion-io. Today, we are proud to raise the bar once more with the ioDrive2.

Consistent low latency access for mixed workloads with 15 microsecond write latency, 3 GB/s bandwidth, over 700,000 read IOPS and over 900,000 write IOPS

Maximum capacity in the smallest footprint, with up to 2.4 TB of capacity to fuel server efficiency even in the most data-intensive environments

All new intelligent self-healing feature called Adaptive FlashBack provides complete chip level fault tolerance, which enables ioMemory to repair itself after a single chip or a multi chip failure without interrupting business continuity

System level integration with the latest Fusion-io VSL 3.0 software subsystem

More work per unit of processing with the cut-through Fusion-io architecture, which continues to deliver performance increases as CPUs become more powerful
