One Million IOPS on a 2 socket server

Today, using Fusion ioMemory technology, I worked with our team of experts to hit 1M 4K random read IOPS on Windows. We did this on a 2-socket Sandy Bridge Server.

Below is the screenshot to prove it:


Think for a moment about what it will take to actually make use of all those IOPS. If this is the type of speed you have at your disposal, maybe it is time to rethink what is possible. Check out our SDK at for the leading edge work Fusion-io is doing in this space.

As I am sure my regular readers  can guess, I am loving my new job!
