While it's going to be tough for Fusion-io to get its ioDrive
any faster in the near term, it ain't so tough to make the world's fastest storage more capacious. Shortly after pulling The Woz
in as its chief scientist, said outfit
has just revealed the next-generation ioDrive, predictably coined ioDrive Duo. The PCI Express-based solution throws 160GB, 320GB, 640GB or 1.28TB of stupid fast SSD storage directly onto your motherboard, enabling it to boast sustained read bandwidth of 1,500MB/sec and write bandwidth of 1,400MB/sec. The smallest three will be available next month for prices we don't even want to guess, while the 1.28TB model is slated to ship shortly after OCZ's 1TB Z Drive
in the latter half of 2009.
