StorTrends 3500i, Hybrid and/or All-Flash Array, Demonstrates Top-Class Performance During Benchmark Against Well-Known Tier 1 Storage Vendors
NORCROSS, Ga. – September 3, 2014 – StorTrends® today announced that an independent lab test and benchmark conducted by StorageReview Enterprise Lab has found its StorTrends 3500i, SSD hybrid and/or full flash storage array, a powerful and easy to deploy hybrid storage platform built for high performance and maximum capacity. During the benchmark testing, which was conducted against well-known Tier 1 storage vendors, the StorTrends 3500i demonstrated top-of-the-class performance. The charts are excerpts of the report for the SQL Server Output Test with 30k Virtual Users.
As you can see from the charts, under a full performance load the StorTrends 3500i outperformed the other hybrid vendors in both highest transaction per second (TPS) and lowest latency. This provides customers with the greatest TPS under strenuous load while responding to every IO in the fastest time possible.
“The real magic of the StorTrends 3500i comes from the control it offers to customers,” said Brian Beeler, Founder, Publisher and Editor, StorageReview. “The array supports both SSD caching and tiering, which is somewhat novel in the hybrid space, and a feature called Automatically Tuned Volumes (ATV). ATV gives users a high-degree of control over what kind of performance an individual volume receives by selecting the storage it sits on, and allowing admins to prioritize (or not) the performance. StorTrends arrays also include a robust set of enterprise-ready data services and the ability to scale up with additional disk enclosures.”
Beeler continued, “While high-performance storage is certainly compelling, where many arrays fall down is on the data services side. StorTrends has done well to mitigate that concern with the inclusion of a host of enterprise features. These are highlighted by support for snapshots, thin provisioning, replication, WAN data services and archiving with deduplication. The system supports RAID 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60 and is managed via an easy to use web-based GUI.”
“The StorTrends 3500i was the top-performing array in the majority of the lab tests ran by StorageReview. This is a testament to the SSD caching, SSD tiering, Automated Tuned Volumes and other key technological features within the StorTrends 3500i. With more than 300 patents it’s clear to see why StorTrends is a frontrunner in the Hybrid Array Lab Report,” said Justin Bagby, Director of StorTrends. “We are proud of the StorTrends 3500i benchmark results; and delighted that customers now have another undeniable proof point that the StorTrends 3500i’s patented features provide the ultimate combination of extreme performance, optimal capacity and ease of use to meet their business application and budgetary requirements.”
