EMC blows benchmark away - again

NFS before, CIFS now

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

EMC has blown another file-serving benchmark away with a result more than four times faster than the previous best.

A pretty much all-flash VG8 (VNX gateway)/VNX 5700 array scored 661,951 operations per second on the SPECsfs2008 CIFS benchmark. The overall response time was 2.1msecs.

The tested system had 560 x 200GB flash drives and 21 x 300GB, 15,000rpm SAS disk drives for a total of 101.2TB and eight file systems. The total exported capacity was 77.455TB. The VNX5700 had five X-blades, one of which was a stand-by blade.

The previous best result was also held by EMC, with a Celerra VG8 Server Failover Cluster using 2 Data Movers (1 standby) and a Symmetrix VMAX array. This set-up achieved 142,979 ops/sec and a 1.92msec overall response time.

The best non-EMC result was achieved by a NetApp FAS3210 with 64,292 ops/sec and a 1.50 response time.

EMC trounced its competitors on the SPECsfs2008 NFS benchmark recently. Once more an almost all-flash system has shown the door to disk-based competitors on a SPEC benchmark. ®
