Subject C* on Fusion IO
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2014 20:40:52 GMT
We’re looking at switching data centers and they’re offering pretty
aggressive pricing on boxes with fusion IO cards.

2x 1.2TB Fusion IO
128GB RAM
20 cores.

now.. this isn’t the typical cassandra box.  Most people are running
multiple nodes to scale out vs scale vertically.  But these boxes are
priced aggressively and honestly I think that cassandra would be able to
saturate the gigabit ethernet port on these machines.

so it *might* be that these are TOO powerful in a way.

Curious if others are running in this config and what tuning options were
required to get it to work.
