Fusion IO has been contracted by Hewlett-Packard (HP) to supply SSDs for the firm’s server division. According to Fusion IO, the cards are capable of delivering a data throughput of 800 MB/s in reading and 600 MB/s in writing processes. Marketed as an IO accelerator, the cards also deliver up to 100,000 IOPs, which is, according to our knowledge, the highest performance currently available in this discipline. Latency time is estimated to be about 50 microseconds to access a 4K block of data.
HP said that the drives will last more than 15 years based on a 5 TB write-and-erase rate per day.
