2011 - Fusion ioDrives on RHEL 6 for Database Performance Acceleration

Updated -

This paper examines the performance characteristics of Fusion-io
PCI-E Solid State Drives on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Testing
was done in two phases. Phase one was running different transfer
sizes and queue depth to test the limits of the drive. In Phase
two, the drives were used for running database workloads with
different database engines and different types of database
workloads. The workload results obtained on the Fusion-io drives
were compared with results obtained with 4G Fibre Channel storage.
