Intel Corporation and STAC (Securities Technology Analysis Center, LLC) published a benchmark using the STORION™ SR-71 iSCSI Storage Appliance with a Financial Services workload. “Results for the MKTSNAP, THEOPL, and VWAB-D benchmarks were 2.2x to 2.7x better than the best corresponding public results to date for SUTs using spinning disks.” See the full report here.
The STORION™ SR-71 iSCSI Storage Appliance is ushering in a new category of storage for demanding applications by delivering up to 600,000 IOPS or an astounding 3.2GBps of bandwidth at latencies as low as 600µs! The STORION™ SR-71 iSCSI Storage Appliance is unique in the market as it has been designed from the ground up as a platform to utilize SSD devices for primary storage. Other vendors have taken existing platforms that have used spinning disks in prior generations and simply changed to SSD. This type of design drives up the price of the platform dramatically, but fails to deliver the potential performance that SSDs are capable of, resulting in a poor ROI.
