Infinio accelerator – quick review

| 04/04/2014 | Tags: , , ,

INFINIO LOGOI recently came across Infinio and after reading about the unique way it tackled the problem of increasing I/O and reducing latency I was curious to see how it would perform in my lab.

A few things I would like to point out. First of all Infinio works only with NFS storage, secondly it does not require flash storage as it utilizes the host RAM instead however it provides only read acceleration.

I chose to setup 1 NFS store per array (RAID1 & RAID0) to see if there were any discernible differences. I had several existing lab VMs (DC and other general VMs) but for additional I/O load I added 3 I/O intensive VMs for each NFS volume.

RAID1

You can see distinct increases to I/O when switched on
