New methodologies provide the most accurate way to validate flash storage performance Flash Testing Methodology WP April 2015 Flash is the hottest technology in the storage industry today. But with all its touted advantages, there are some challenges – including how to effectively measure the performance benefits for your own environment.
Effectively measuring the performance of flash arrays requires more than the basic freeware benchmarking tools. It requires the ability to assess advanced functions such compression, deduplication and pattern reduction processing, which minimize the amount of data written to flash memory in order to lower the cost per GB and extend flash longevity. Measuring performance without taking these features into account could falsely overstate the performance of a flash array by a factor of 2 or more.
