So what you're saying is vendor benchmarks are absolute steaming bullshit?
Well, colour me absolutely shocked.
Diane Greene's server-powered storage startup Datrium says it has achieved the highest-ever IOmark benchmark at 8,000 VMs on a DVX cluster, five times higher than the previous record by IBM's FlashSystem V9000 (1,600) and ten times more than an Intel server/VMware/vSAN Optane system (800) (PDF). But it appears the official …
Chris Mellor took the time to speak with me about this testing and accurately quoted our conversations, which is greatly appreciated. No doubt the reporting is somewhat complicated, but bottom line is the following:
1) This is NOT a vendor benchmark, it is an audited benchmark that has reported results by many large vendors (IBM, HDS, HPE, Intel, VMware) and others such as Tintri, Datrium, etc.
2) Datrium achieved the published results with their storage gear as tested and reported
3) For IOmark-VM, CPU and memory are viewed as fungible, hence reporting the servers for HCI configs becomes a pricing exercise
Happy to discuss with anyone who isn't an anonymous coward.
I have some questions. Where can I reach you? ..... Trevor_Pott
What better place for answers than here in these virtual spaces providing commentary and platforms guidance, TP.
There are no secrets available for deep dark dank storage nowadays. That is so yesterday man. Have you forgotten all the problems it caused?
And the mega money shot question in that Live Operational Virtual Environment always is, does one have the IntelAIgents required to Securely Access All Necessary Future Information for the Engagement and Entertainment/Capture and Control of Rabid Masses and Undereducated Hordes.
