Episode 78: SAN Essentials Part III

In this instalment in our SAN Essentials series Mark takes us through performance and performance testing. Using Iometer we look at the performance of an EqualLogic(Dell) and HP EVA SAN  by presenting disks from each, over iSCSI and Fibre, to a VMWare host. Now the results may shock you, I mean surely fibre has got to be faster it just seems far more futuristic for a start, but it seems there are far more factors than that to consider, join us to find find out more…

Really good episode. Looks like Mark put a lot of work into setting that up. Was it just for the podcast or another project?

Hi. It was all just for the pod cast. Hopefully it will be useful and interesting to many as I constantly get asked which is the best and quickest.

Even more impressive that it was just for the podcast. Considering you lot do this all for free :)

I've always seen those big SAN drives in the server room at my old place (NHS), when I had to go in and do backups. Now I know what they do :)

Guys you had the number of outstandign IO's set to 64 for the throughput test for the iSCSI that gave 108mb/s and set to 1 for the next two tests. You also had Test Connection Rate set to 500 - see 44:34.

Thats why you saw such a huge difference, FC would have have filled that 2gbps (although the cards said 4gbps) from 66 spindles with EASE.
