[AMD] Faster, Easier, Simpler Storage Technology: Enmotus FuzeDrive™ for AMD Ryzen™ - Page 3

post #21 of 27
So AMD is releasing software that turns your SSD and HDD into a virtual SSHD hybrid drive.

Sounds cool. Too bad I need allocated partitions for data backups and management. JBOD doesn't work for anyone that cares about data.

Optane is hardware. This is software. More like AMD's answer to Intel's RST, which could use an SSD as a cache for an HDD. My professional experience with Intel RST was garbage. I wouldn't touch a SW tool like this unless the hardware it was on was meant to support it properly. Mainly for the dirty shutdown cases.

Ah cmon, nothing more reliable that at least two individual points of failure for one readable drive.

Mr Owl, how many [individual points of failure] does it take to get the the [data loss and failure] of a [virtualized volume].

Let's see...

A-one, a-two-hoo

Honestly, it depends. This makes it a bit easier and if you can configure which drives it uses and allow it to ignore some, it could make for an alternate way to RAID drives. eg. I could think of a use case where I buy an M.2 SSD and keep my current 840Evo with this, it's still fast SSD storage and it sounds like it'd put the heavily used stuff on the M.2 drive and use the slower SSD for other things. Or possibly adding together your HDDs so you simply have one C: and one D: drive. If it worked under Linux, it'd make it a lot easier than worrying about mount points and the like too depending on how good the code for determining which files go on the SSDs and which on the HDDs is.

Usually I'm against caching but Optane looks semi-decent and this also looks interesting especially with AMDs previous work with RAMDrives. A TR system running some NVMe drives and a large RAMDisk on fast DDR4 for caching them would be insane.

I kinda want a simple version of it for power users rather than an algorithm or the like. I have xGB of RAMDisk and/or 3D XPoint on my system, I'd like to accelerate the loading of these folders/files (eg. Windows, your user profile data and some commonly used programs) which then automatically copies them from whatever storage you use, treats the fast storage as default storage and periodically writes new data in as needed. In theory a power outage or the like shouldn't hurt things much more than it would normally, especially with 3D XPoint as it retains data.

I’m betting next gen consoles are going to need something like this.

Theoretically they should just have a 64GB cache that stores the most commonly used data, and load the rest off HDD. Loading time tests seem to indicate hybrid drives work very well, but the drives themselves seem to have a bad reputation so a combination of separate drives is probably best, not to mention I’m sure a console maker would want separate partitions available for various applications.

Marketing a console with a 1TB SSD isn’t really feasible (at least not yet, who knows maybe by 2020 it wouldn’t be a stretch), but if they can use a smaller dive to accelerate everything I’m sure that would make a lot of people happy.

Better have an extreme UPS on that TR RAMdisk pipedream.. A shutdown, even on nvme is going to take awhile to make an image backup of the ramdisk.
