| "leading the way to
the new storage frontier"|
Third I/O Inc. specializes in high speed bandwidth and
supercomputing solutions. Our flagship product is Iris; a patent-pending hybrid
data storage and enterprise server platform. Iris was benchmarked in early 2007
at nearly 8 GB/s and 778,000 I/O operations per second, which is significantly
higher performance than any publicly stated Fibre Channel storage performance.
It was Third I/O's pleasure to introduce Iris to the world in September 2007's
Intel Developer's Forum as the worlds first publicly demonstrated 8 Gb/s Fibre
Channel storage device. The company is headquartered in Austin, TX.

for companies in stealth mode.Or it may be that the company is never going to
emerge at all.
In 2007 Third I/O started drip feeding information
about its Iris software - a CD installable technology which transforms a
standard AMD server with 8Gbps FC adapters into a high performance roll your
own RAM based SSD.
July 2008 - the company said it had achieved 1 million IOPS on a
single quad core Opteron server connected via 14 FC ports..

the "play it again Sam" syndrome.............
|Editor:- Flash SSD "random
write IOPS" are now similar to "read IOPS" in many of the
fastest SSDs. |
why are they such a poor predictor of application performance?
why are users still buying
RAM SSDs which cost
9x more than SLC? - even when the IOPS specs look similar.
||This article tells you
why the specs got faster - but the applications didn't. And why competing SSDs
with apparently identical benchmark results can perform completely
