ETERNUS DX440 S2 demonstrates best-ever in-class performance, with SPC Benchmark-1™

The world's best performance
In mid-range class

August 8, 2012

Performance testing of an ETERNUS DX440 S2 disk storage system using SPCBenchmark-1™, the Storage Performance Council's (*Note 1) storage benchmark, produced an SPC-1 IOPS™ of 102,989.38. This ETERNUS DX440 S2 record demonstrates world's best performance for any dual controller mid-range disk storage system (*Note 2).

SPC Benchmark-1™ test program is designed to simulate 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.

The test results are on the Storage Performance Council (SPC) web site from June 26, 2012 and will be officially accepted after the 60-day peer review period.

What is the SPC Benchmark?
The Storage Performance Council (SPC) is a vendor-neutral standards body focused on the storage industry. It has created the first industry-standard performance benchmark targeted at the needs and concerns of the storage industry. SPC benchmarks™ provide a rigorous, audited and reliable measure of performance; http://www.storageperformance.org/join

Fujitsu subscribes to SPC Benchmark™ testing as a valid and independent way for customers to judge performance results; http://www.storageperformance.org/specs

  • The SPC Benchmark-1™ test program is designed to simulate critical business applications through processing multiple, complex transactions. Pseudo-operational workloads of Online Transactions (OLTP), database operations and mail systems are recreated to measure "random access" read/write performance.
  • The SPC Benchmark-2™ test program is designed to show aggregate performance of the storage subsystem in large-sized, sequential access environments. The program consists of three distinct workload profiles: large file processing, large database queries and video on demand.
