Before you implemented the fusionIO drive, did you verify that the server was actually IO bound so that you could expect to see an increase in performance?
If most of the activity on the server was reads, and most of the data was cached in memory, I would expect to see very little improvement in performance.
That sounds remarkably similar to what I said! :-D
Different point of view. I was more concerned that someone would buy an expensive piece of hardware like that without knowing if it was going to be possible for it to improve performance.
I just hate it when poeple spend a lot of money on something without knowing what they are trying to gain, just throwing money at something in hopes that it will help.
