Before we get into final thoughts, I have a bit of a bone to pick with Fusion-IO regarding their products lacking boot support. Instead of going into a long tirade about the subject, I'm going to paste an excerpt from a product brief of theirs I downloaded back in 2007:
device in existence.
The RevoDrive x2 builds on the excellent performance of the original RevoDrive. It turned in some excellent figures, pushing past much of the competition, and nipping at the heels of enterprise-class SSD gear from Fusion-IO. Cost/GB is a bit higher than the RevoDrive, but given the ~50% gain in performance, it seems to be a fair increase. If you want even more fire-breathing than the RevoDrive can provide, go grab yourself a RevoDrive x2!
