ZFS Storage ZS3-4 Delivers World Record SPC-2 Performance Results
(As of Tuesday, 10 September 2013)
The Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-4 delivered the best overall performance result to date on the SPC-2 benchmark with a world record 17,244.22 SPC-2 MBPS, while also delivering the second best current SPC-2 Price-Performance score of $22.53 (1) This demonstrates the ability of the Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-4 to simultaneously deliver both extreme performance and unprecedented value to customers.
SPC-2 consists of three distinct workloads designed to demonstrate the performance of a storage subsystem during the execution of business-critical applications that require the large-scale, sequential movement of data. Those applications are characterized predominately by large I/Os organized into one or more concurrent sequential patterns. A description of each of the three SPC-2 workloads is listed below as well as examples of applications characterized by each workload.
Large File Processing: Applications in a wide range of fields, which require simple sequential process of one or more large files such as scientific computing and large-scale financial processing.
Large Database Queries: Applications that involve scans or joins of large relational tables, such as those performed for data mining or business intelligence.
Video on Demand: Applications that provide individualized video entertainment to a community of subscribers by drawing from a digital film library.
