QlikView Server installation on ioDrive

Hi,

I am considering to install QlikView Server on ioDrive.

http://www.fusionio.com/products/iodrive/

Does QlikView support those kind of hardware? I assume ioDrive is something like SSD.

Best Regards,

Daniel is correct. If you do decide to use it, you need to make sure Delay Write is disabled. This can cause problems with the reading and writing to the PGO files used by QV server.

I don't think it makes that much sense, why not just use a regular hard drive? do you have any specific performance requirements?

QlikView isn't that intensive in hard drive use.

I understand that QlikView relies more on memory. I am expecting somewhat benefit in I/O advantage for read/write QVW, QVD, shared and pgo files.

More importantly, what I would like to confirm is that QlikView can work properly with ioDrive.

Re: QlikView Server installation on ioDrive

Hi,

Did you install qlikview on the Fusion-io card? Did you notice any improvement from that, because we got the io2 and I tested on a big 25GB qvw and did not see any improvement from a regular drive. About the same time for reading and writing the file from/to disk. Any tips?

Thanks!

Bogdan

Can this device be used as virtual memory and be recognized by QlikView?

Cheers
