AFA Performance Testing Framework
|出版日期||內容資訊||英文 22 Pages
This IDC study provides a framework for end users to test flash-based arrays. It is primarily designed for use with AFAs, all-flash configurations of HFAs, and highly flash-optimized HFAs. IDC performed substantial research to understand and document the unique performance characteristics of flash-based arrays, evaluated various storage performance and other testing tools, and worked with array vendors as well as independent testing labs. The result is a proposed test plan that will allow end users to accurately characterize how flash-based arrays will perform in their environments against their workloads.
"Flash-based arrays exhibit unique performance characteristics that are very different from HDD-based storage architectures and are used with workloads that are very different from those of the recent past," said Eric Burgener, research director, IDC Storage Systems. "As they execute test plans with these arrays, these differences need to be taken into account in order to be relevant for real-world 3rd Platform workloads."
