Let's use what we have 'better' so we don't have to redesign
"The industry is relatively good at improving GB/$ [gigabytes per dollar], but less so at IOPS/GB [input-output-per-second per gigabyte]"
A better approach than redesigning hard drives is to add the right software intelligence to fully leverage what we already have. DataCore just proved this to the world again.
[JUST THE FACTS]
- DataCore just achieved 1,510,090 SPC-1 IOps
- Did this at a cost of $0.09/SPC-1 IO
- Landed in both top-ten categories for Performance and Price/Performance (never been done before)
- Did this at 99.95 microseconds average response time at 100% load (never been done before)
