I will be bench marking and testing different use cases for new emerging enterprise storage platforms. This post outlines the standardized benchmark testing that will be used.

Benchmark tool: Intel’s IOMeter version 2006.07.27

  • Starting disk sector: 0
  • # of Outstanding I/Os: 32 (important)
  • IO profile: 32k; 50% read; (50% write)
