Research and Markets: How Many IOPS Is Enough?
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wp7fq6/how_many_iops_is)
has announced the addition of the "How
Many IOPS Is Enough?" report to their offering.
This report gives updated results of the survey that determines the IOPS
requirements for various applications. User inputs are amplified by
collateral information that correlates IOPS requirements with key
enterprise SSD markets.
The 80-page report dissects the results of a months-long on-line survey
of IT managers which collected their inputs on the IOPS, capacity, and
latency needs for a number of key enterprise applications. Through its
54 figures and eight tables the study sheds new light on the speed
requirements for certain key applications.
The survey asked respondents to share a rough idea of their high-speed
storage needs,expressed in capacity and performance, measured in IOPS
(inputs or outputs per second) and maximum latency. Nearly two hundred
respondents also shared the speed of the rest of their system and for
the application type being run on that system.
In many cases there was a reasonable correlation between two of
the surveyed parameters:
Capacity & IOPS requirements
Capacity & Maximum Latency
IOPS Requirements and Maximum Latency
A relatively large number of our respondents (68%) did not measure their
system's performance. Their response (and likely their approach to
solving storage related issues) was to use their best guess.
The sample group was of a respectable size, giving us a 7.1% margin of
error. We continue to collect survey data with a goal of increasing the
respondent base and reducing the error margin.
Storage pricing is loosely tied to performance. This relationship is
likely to tighten as a result of this survey and as those who purchase
fast storage become more sophisticated.
