July 2, 2010
Performance testing of ETERNUS DX8400 disk storage system using SPC Benchmark-1™, the Storage Performance Council's (*Note 1) storage benchmark, demonstrated an SPC-1 IOPS™ of 171,736.84. This is about 1.5 times higher performance than with the previous model (*Note 2).
SPC Benchmark-1™ test program is designed for business critical applications processing many complex transactions. Pseudo operational workloads of Online Transactions (OLTP), database operations, and mail systems are recreated to measure random access read/write performance. In the test program, ETERNUS DX8400, the smaller enterprise model of ETERNUS DX8000 series, achieved $8.39 / SPC-1 IOPS™ SPC-1 Price-Performance as well as the great IOPS result, proving itself a system combining excellent I/O performance and cost efficiency.
The test results have been recorded on the Storage Performance Council (SPC) web site from May 25, 2010 and will be officially approved after the lapse of the 60-day review period.
