Storage Performance Testing Guidelines

Enterprise storage is a huge investment and is typically plagued with performance issues. High virtual machine density, scale and workload diversity have been placing great performance strain on enterprise storage.

This paper explores the various facets of enterprise storage performance and the components between application and disk which impact system performance. The paper also digs into performance testing requirements for enterprise storage appliances and how they can be translated into comprehensive performance testing results that aid customer decision making. Some key areas within the paper include:

  • Importance of storage performance testing
  • Storage performance measurements
  • Storage performance considerations
  • Client side considerations
  • Network considerations
  • Host (server) side considerations
  • Hypervisor (virtualization) considerations
  • Storage performance testing best practices
