The IBM Storwize V7000 SPC-1 benchmark (OLTP-style workload) for IBM Storwize V7000 is now available at http://www.storageperformance.org/results/benchmark_results_spc1/#spc1Review the executive summary at http://www.storageperformance.org/benchmark_results_files/SPC-1/IBM/A00097_IBM_Storwize-V7000/a00097_IBM_Storwize-V7000_2-node_SPC1_executive-summary.pdf
SPC benchmark system info:
This measurement is of an IBM Storwize V7000 system with 120 internal disk drives and also 80 external drives that are being virtualized. Although we cannot measure a system with 240 drives at this point, this configuration provides a good perspective of the expected performance of a system with close to the maximum number of internal drives and also shows that the Storwize V7000 system performs very well when virtualizing external disk systems.

I seem to be stuck in the clouds lately, I am serious I have spent a great deal of time thinking about Cloud Computing.
For instance, with the in-depth push into virtualization across all layers in the Data Center (Storage, Networking, Servers etc….) I have gotten hung up on, at what point in the virtualization process does an enterprise cross over from a virtualized Data Center to having a Private Cloud? Do we have metrics to let us know and are there points of diminishing returns?
Another sticking point is Cloud management tools…. Where are we in the development and roll-out of these tools?
Anyone else stuck on these issues?
Today IBM took the covers off a revolutionary way to not only deploy but to run mid-range storage.
