Fusion-io on Monday announced that the ioFX workstation solid-state drive is now available with 1.6TB of capacity, in addition to the original 420GB version. The high capacity ioFX is ideal for video editing, computer assisted design (CAD), 4K and stereoscopic production, as well as digital intermediate (DI) finishing.

Fusion ioFX solid-state drives for workstations are based on QDP MLC (quad-die package multi-level cell) NAND flash memory as well as Furion-io's own controller. The maker declares up to 1.4GB/s read bandwidth and 42ns average latency time for its ioFX SSD. The drive utilizes PCI Express 2.0 x4 (physical x8) interface. The ioFX is compatible with a broad list of operating systems, including Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Mac OS X, RHEL, SLED and OEL.

Thanks to the cut-through architecture of ioMemory, the Fusion ioFX provides low-latency data performance tuned to manipulate digital content on the fly. With the ioFX, professionals can now view changes in real-time, even when working with ultra high resolution (2K, 4K, 5K) or stereoscopic content. The ioFX SSDs are optimized for sustained performance in multithreaded applications; accelerated video and image editing and compositing programs; encoding/transcoding as well as other data-intensive activities in contemporary digital production.

The Fusion ioSphere management system included with the ioFX allows studio IT managers to monitor and manage all Fusion ioMemory products deployed throughout the infrastructure from a single interface, including Fusion ioFX in workstations and Fusion ioDrives in servers. The ioSphere system delivers historical performance monitoring and reporting, live performance metrics, alerts and more to ensure production continues running smoothly.

The 1.6 TB Fusion ioFX will be available in summer 2013. List price will be disclosed when the product is released. The 420 GB ioFX is available now from Fusion-io and value added resellers around the world for a list price of $1995 USD.
