Allone Cloud Disk Drive 101 Reaches Half Mil IOPS – Computex 2014 Update

A bit of a gem that we got our mitts on for testing back at the office this year at Computex is the new Cloud Disk Drive 101 IOI RamDisk.   Taking a close look at this device, you just may notice, not only Kingston laptop memory modules, but also 3 SD card slots.

The Allone Cloud Disk Drive 101 is  run by Allones exclusive RamCore 5338 controller and uses SODIMM memory to create a RAMDisk of up to 500K IOPS.  It has backup battery power and 6 SD card slots that serve as a backup solution should a power failure occur.

As can be seen in this picture, the Allone Cloud Disk Drive 101 is pushing over a half mil IOPS which even we would never have expected from such a device.

This is most definitely a very interesting item and, at a MSRP of $15000 retail, is obviously something we wanted to have in our hands for testing… stay tuned!

    Why the hell is the msrp so high? Makes me think of the Gigabyte iram drives from a few years ago.

      Their video makes it look like they’re chasing the bottom end of FusionIO’s market (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2Chq5C3tio) – so that pricing is reasonable. But, if it takes 2 SODIMMs (or 3?) then the max capacity would be 32-48GB? If so it would be better to market to storage enthusiasts and go for volume? I bet their enterprise pitch will fail and we’ll see it sold to the rest of use within the year 🙂

      Yeah. Tbh, it is much more viable putting a UPS on the entire computers for $100, and just kitting out your motherboard with RAM to use as a drive. Many motherboards will support > 128 GB…so this price is ridiculous for such a thing.
