I have an Ubuntu Server setup (Ubuntu 12.04) as a cache server. I want to install a FusionIO card so as to run the operating system and applications from the card and have the Hardware Raid as the cache storage.

Anyone with ideas can be helpful.



Regards.

Did you download the driver from fusionio? The steps to install the card should be the following:

1. Install the fusionio driver and set up worker process.
2. Reboot and load the module.
3. Configure LVM, check status with fio-status.
4. Mount file system in fstab.

I would suggest contacting FuisonIO as they provided driver package because you are asking support for closed-source package.
