Performance comparaison between FAS models

Hello,

Is there any document that compare performance between FAS series and models (for example : FAS3xxx / FAS31xx / FAS32xx)

I particulary interrested in comparing performance of a FAS3240 versus a FAS3070

Notice : I do not have access to the "Fields Portal"

Best Regards

This info under NDA now.

You can look at SPC-1 and SPEC SFS2008 published results.

Good question.

For some workloads (not all) 3240 can beat 3170, so my informed guess would be 3070 won't stand a chance against 3240 (the latter has the same amount of RAM, twice as much of NVRAM & definitely faster CPU comparing to the former).

Regards,

Radek

Re: Performance comparaison between FAS models

We have both the FAS3070 and FAS3170 and the difference between them is massive.

This graph shows two Exchange 2003 luns.  Aug 2009 was when we moved them from the FAS3070 to the FAS3170.

It would show a drop from 12ms to 2ms.
