Fujitsu presents the mighty ETERNUS as new disaster-proof hero

Fujitsu’s ETERNUS DX200F all-flash array (AFA) is always up for it even in the face of catastrophes, the firm says. The DX200 all-flash array was announced in April last year, offering the same performance – Fujitsu said – as specially-designed flash architectures, but for less money, due to its standard system architecture: …

Another day, another load of benchmarketing, this time from HDS

Storagebod I had hoped we’d moved beyond the SPC-1 benchmarketing but it appears not. If you read HDS veep Hu Yoshida’s blog, apparently the VSP G1000 is "the clear leader in storage performance against the leading all flash storage arrays." Yet when you look at the list of AFAs Hu uses for that comparison, there are so many missing that …

HDS blogger names HDS flash array as latency winner

Flash array response times climb as load increases, with good ones able to delay the response time uptick for longer. HDS blogger Hu Yoshida showed a chart produced from SPC-1 benchmark data showing how different flash arrays behave in response-time terms as the SPC-1 percentage benchmark task load increases from 10 per cent …

Hitachi smashes SPC-1 benchmark, boasts: We HAF ways of crushing 2 million IOPs

Hitachi has pushed past the two-million IOPS barrier in the SPC-1 benchmark, with a flash-accelerated VSP claimed to be the fastest-performing storage array ever. The all-flash VSP G1000 array used HAF (Hitachi Accelerated Flash) modules to score 2,004,941.89 SPC-1 IOPS, 62 per cent faster than the previous fastest system, a …

Fujitsu flasher pleases data-intensive divas – SPC-1 benchmark

If you need cheap storage array IOPS and lots of them, Fujitsu's DX600 S3 array can deliver those goods – at least according to an SPC-1 benchmark. The Storage Performance Council (SPC) is an industry group dedicated to producing objective and vendor-neutral benchmarks to enable meaningful performance comparisons to be made …

NetApp and IBM's high fibre treat: First SPC benchmark using FCoE

NetApp and IBM have released SPC-1 benchmarks showing IBM’s 10 gig V7000 FCoE system being narrowly beaten by NetApp’s FAS8020 using 16gig FC. Let's rephrase that. A flash-assisted array using faster Fibre Channel beat an all-disk array using slower Ethernet. Quelle surprise. SPC-1 tests a storage array’s ability to perform …

Just how much bang does a FAS8040 box give you for 500,000 bucks

Blocks and Files A just-announced two-node NetApp FAS8040 cluster scored 86,072.33 IOPS [PDF] on the SPC-1 random I/O storage benchmark, with linear scale-out extrapolation suggesting it could do better than the FAS6240's performance. The list price for the system was a smidgen below half a million bucks at $495,652.43, giving a list price/ …

Huawei hybrid array smashes aside puny SPC-1 contenders

Huawei has crushed the SPC-1 benchmark lists for hybrid SDD-HDD arrays with its OceanStor 18800 delivering over a million IOPS. SPC-1 benchmarks are used to test the random I/O performance of a storage array, and Kaminario claims the top two spots with all flash and all-DRAM K2 arrays. Huawei’s hot box delivered 1.005,893.43 …

Kaminario SPC-2 result

Kaminario in amazeballs all-flash K2 streaming-storage benchmark brag

Kaminario has taken the SPC-2 streaming storage benchmark, shook it hard, wrung it out, and left everyone else for dust with its K2 all-flash array, with a result nearly twice as fast as the previously top-ranked Oracle ZFS array. The SPC-2 benchmark tests a storage array's streaming IO performance whereas the companion SPC-1 …

DRAM whammed, thank you ma'am: Kaminario K2 flash bests sib at SPC-1

Kaminario has submitted an SPC-1 benchmark run on its K2 flash array, and it's reached the top. It's booted the DRAM version of its K2 array off the top spot with a fourth-generation product, the K2 v4. The K2 DRAM scored 1,219,973.91 IOPS from its 1.2TB of RAM in July last year. The K2 v4 system used 28 K-Nodes, each with …

Dot Hill: Performance isn't everything... check out our, er, cheap capacity

Mid-range storage array vendor Dot Hill has presented its SPC-1 performance benchmark results in a left-field way to make it stand-out from the crowd, saying it leads as the best performer on a $/GB (capacity) measure. It's announced "exceptional value for mid-range customers," with its AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series storage array …

All-flash IBM V7000 smashes Oracle/Sun ZFS box

Flash strikes again. IBM's newest storage array, the Storwize V7000, has trounced an Oracle/Sun ZFS array, delivering almost the same performance for less than half the price and 4 per cent of the capacity. The SPC-1 benchmark tests the performance of a storage array doing mainly random I/O in a business environment. IBM's …

Fujitsu array brags of quick thrust, modest cost

Fujitsu claims its Eternus DX80 S2 array is the SPC-1 golden child, with the best price-performance ratios in the mid-range dual controller storage arrays sector. There is no formal mid-range definition though. SPC-1 is an independent storage array benchmark responding to typical business-critical applications. The S2 version …

IBM snatches back SPC-1 benchmark crown

IBM's SAN Volume Controller has done the benchmark business, again, and passed the half million SPC-1 IOPS mark using Storwize V7000 storage. The Storage Performance Council-1 benchmark measures the ability of a storage configuration to respond to I/O requests, counting SPC-1 I/Os per second (IOPS). The scenario is said to be …

Xiotech unscabbards go-faster flash-mungous ISE blade

Six months after it was announced, Xiotech's go-faster flash-enhanced ISE storage blade is here, and ready to rock and roll. Hybrid ISE combines multi-level cell (MLC) flash with hard disk drives and continuously and automatically moves data between these two storage tiers to optimise I/O performance. In its 3U enclosure there …
