drivers might be a challenge since the fusion io website fowards to sandisk and then forwards to western digital so drivers may be a problem.I wonder what current operating systems are supported. Does it use standard ioDrive drivers or some specific ones ?
Lots of nand on that card.
Since this is old tech, 30% more now and then 5 years from now when it dies get a newer replacement? Assuming the company is still around...We offer a No deductible 3 year warranty for 20% purchase price or a No deductible 5 year warranty for 30% purchase price. Overnight Replacements options available.
could see if some of those tesla gpu cooler fans might fitI have a couple of fusion-io from the original Duo to the newer version. Beside high power consumption, I can’t find a reason to dislike them. I didn’t have any issue with any of them not working correctly. They are about as good as it gets in last generation PCI SSD storage (not the NVME generation).
Because of high power consumption, adequate cooling is a must. Even with a un-modded supermicro 4u case (loud), I still need to put a fan on them.
I can’t find a use case for a 10TB SSD for my need. If I had a valid need, I would bet my $$ on an io-drive.
I can't answer that because I don't have any personal experience with this particular card. @aquacow is our expert on fusion-io drives. My cards didn't need anything special beside matching the firmware and the drivers. I am using them in ESXi 6.0 (and 5.5 prior to that).
