Fusion-io Passes The One Billion IOPS Barrier

During a presentation at DEMO, Fusion-io just broke the one billion IOPS mark using eight ioDrive2 Duos in a rack of eight HP servers. I've embedded the video below:

This massive performance boost comes courtesy of a new way of using NAND flash as a non-volatile memory solution, known as Auto Commit Memory. ACM is a software layer which allows developers to send and receive data stored on Fusion-io's ioDrive cards directly to and from the CPU, rather than relying upon the operating system. Because of this, massive applications and databases can run with much lower latency آ— crucial for the cloud-based world we're heading towards.
