Blazing Fast SQLServer with XTremIO
We have been busy discussing and showing customers how well XTremIO works with SQL Server at the Microsoft Technology Center. The live solutions makes it real for customers to see the brick under very high workload of more than 200,000 sustained IOPs with a mere 1 millisecond response time. AppSync was used to create application-consistent snapshots of the LUNs while everything is going on without any noticeable impact to the performance.
Here is what we got out of the 2-brick config servicing IO for the 80-core SQL Server under an OLTP workload.
Our Speed Demon, Ryan Kucera, pulled me aside and said he could get another 60,000 - 70,000 IOPs out of it if he had more servers to drive the workload. So, I am sending him extra 24 cores for him to push the brick. The gears arrive next Friday 3/25..
Are we going to see Ryan breaking the 300,000 IOPs barrier?
BTW - Meanwhile, we continue to show customers with the 200,000 IOPs config. If you have an prospect XTremIO customer and want to show them the config, drop us a line at MTC911@emc.com.
