    I missed the 280 deal. I've bought from the Sony seller you linked to before, so I picked one up from them.

    You need to add the vib for it to work.

    I always put some cheap Fusion-IO SSD in my lab host.

    640GB Fusion-IO card with 10PB write endurance for $100.
    I am 62 years old, if I write 1TB per day. It would last me my lifetime. :)

    For esxi 6.5u1
    esxcli software acceptance set --level=CommunitySupported
    esxcli software vib install -d /tmp/libvsl-600-1.0.0-3.2.15.1699.zip
    esxcli software vib install -d /tmp/scsi-iomemory-vsl-60L-3.2.15.1699-offline_bundle-5351806.zip
    reboot
    esxcli software vib list

    @realtomatoes

    Sometimes , you are lucky , I would have paid the asking price $110 each, but the seller accepted $100 each.
    I am a sucker for 640GB Fusion-IO SSD for low $100 range.

    see
    Fusion-io ioDrive 640GB,Internal (FS1-004-640-CS-0001) SSD

    These drives are 10PB write endurance , with 97.7% life left.
    Here are some interesting stat
    PCIe Bus power: avg 4.67W max 7.76W
    Rated PBW: 10.00 PB, 97.77% remaining

    These are PCIe-2.0 interface, do not expect same performance as the NVMe SSD.
    I ran this performance test on a 10years old AMD x2 550 CPU computer. ( I used it do all my firmware flashing here )

    Will storage devices like this be normally usable in the the context of say something like a normal disk drive that can be shown/given to vSAN, ScaleIO, Storage Spaces Direct, etc?

    you'll need a driver for it but yes, it should work just like another disk.

    I have a bunch of these in a storage space right now. They just show up to the OS as a block device once the driver is loaded, so as long as you are running a supported OS, you can put any other software layer above them.
