Evaluating the performance of storage systems can be a complicated and difficult process. Workloads can vary widely from one environment to another, making “standardized” tests meaningless when real-world workloads must be accommodated. Performing simple random/sequential, read/write workloads is not enough to emulate the performance demands of real-world environments. Thus, X-IO has developed methods to simulate observed customer workloads for the purpose of performance testing. This paper will detail one of the many tests that are performed at the X-IO world headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado, U.S.A. This test is one of a series of ongoing performance tests designed to evaluate new firmware versions for the Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) storage array.
