Apple Fusion Drive Details

Apple-Fusion-Drive.png

A sneaky tech announcement here thats basically a hybrid flash drive but managed by mountain lion. The OS fits along with OS based apps on the flash part of the drive and Apps / documents are held on the traditional hard drive.  Other Apps and documents get stored onto the HDD.  Its optimising so the most recently used apps get automatically moved onto the flash partition.

It might sound like something from back to the future but the Apple Fusion Drive it a basic take on hybrid hard drives but with OS based optimisation.  Meaning most recently used programs should in theory be moved to the flash based part for quicker operations

  • 128gb Flash storage
  • 1tb or 3TB hdd
  • Fused together into a single volume
  • Works automatically in mountain Lion
  • Performance wise it’s on a par with a SSD drive depending on operation
