DataCore and Lenovo claim SPC-1 price/performance record

By

Storage software specialist DataCore and hardware vendor Lenovo have together set a new price/performance record on the SPC-1 benchmark.

A system running DataCore SANsymphony-V parallel I/O software on a Lenovo System x3650 M5 multi-core server (pictured) with Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 series processors, 16 SSDs and 8 hard disk drives, and running Microsoft Windows Server has achieved an audited SPC-1 price-performance of US$0.08 per SPC-1 IOPS.

It also recorded the fastest response times ever achieved, according to DataCore officials.

The only other similar system (where the SPC-1 applications and their storage workloads run on the same platform) for which publicly reported results are available is an IBM Power 780 Server rated at US$4.56 per SPC-1 IOPS.

The result is also a significant improvement on the figure achieved by the previous record holder on this benchmark, the Infortrend EonStor DS 3024B that came in at US$0.24 per SPC-1 IOPS.

"We'd like to see others, like Nutanix and SimpliVity, publish SPC-1 benchmark numbers to reveal how they fare against our record-breaking SPC-1 price-performance results. Then customers can clearly assess the cost implications of these alternatives," said DataCore CEO George Teixeira.

"There's been much speculation about how these systems perform under I/O-intensive workloads generated by mission-critical enterprise applications. Using the peer-reviewed SPC-1 full disclosure process provides an objective frame of reference for making comparisons prior to any buying decisions."

He added "Lenovo initially approached us to run the demanding SPC-1 enterprise workload benchmark.

"They wanted proof we could fully harness the power of their multi-core servers given the abundance of unsubstantiated performance claims circulating in hyper-converged circles.

"They soon realised with parallel I/O, we had a rocket ship in our hands."

The total cost of the DataCore/Lenovo system benchmarked was US$38,400.29 including three years of support.
