    Is there any chance to make this work under some recent Linux distro release like Debian 10 or CentOS 8?

    7.x for sure... 8.x probably won't happen w/o some hackery.

    Darn, I would have jumped on a few of those... 11 sold at that price? I could make an amazing array out of that easily.

    Would one of these work in a standard PC as fast storage (nonbootable) like the sun oracle f40 cards?

    I'm assuming they would have to load an option bios (or whatever it's called) upon boot like the f40s but if I could go from 2 cards to one and get more storage/speed it's totally worth it.

    That highly depends on your standard PC OS. This storage has strong driver issues - I can confirm it working on ESXi, different versions of Windows server, but surely not on Windows 7/8/10, and not any Linux (though there is a big thread how to run it on Proxmox).

    It runs on the latest RHEL/CentOS 7.x releases and works fine in windows 7/8/10.

    Also works fine in any ESXi 5.x and 6.x

    There are no driver issues, just some OS version restrictions, as the drivers must be compiled to your exact linux kernel that you are running.

    Oh, maybe I missed something in that exact Fusion-io, but for 1.3TB and 1.6TB there are no win 7/8/10 drivers. Windows server is fine, but not desktop Win.

    Yeah, it's the same driver. The latest windows server storport driver installs in win10 just fine.
