Datrium Audited as the Highest I Omark Benchmark Result in History – Mind-Blowing 10X!
“Datrium is the most scalable, fastest and lower latency storage solution (converged or not) on the market, beyond doubt.”
We already knew that our solution is really competent, but there’s nothing like a 3rd party audited benchmark to convince even the most suspicious greybeards. The results are mind-blowing!
In partnership with Dell and IOmark.org, we have been able to validate that Datrium achieved 8,000 VMs on a single Datrium converged platform running 60 servers and 10 data nodes. (Press Release here)
Let’s stop here for a brief moment because I need to make sure that you understand Datrium’s capabilities and how these tests were executed before we compare to other IOmark results.
1 – The purpose of the IOmark.org is to create and maintain benchmarks that allow users to accurately and fairly characterize storage systems running application workloads. IOmark is a storage benchmark, not synthetic. It replays real application workload traces. So the usual “that’s an artificial hero number” does not apply here, this is for real. The benchmark reports “number of VMs supportable by the system,” not just peak throughput. It also runs for a few hours (dataset population & then run, with vMotions, etc. going on in the background). So it’s like steady-state performance.
