At EMC World 2015, Intel brought serious game to the industry’s largest storage show — demonstrating a slick, all-flash 32-node VSAN configuration — complete with a cool, animated bezel.
In initial testing, the configuration shows ~3.25 million IOPS for 4K random reads, and an impressive ~2 million IOPS with a 70r/30w 4K random mix. Amazing performance in a single, dense rack designed to support 3200 VMs.
You could almost feel the “drool factor” as people crowded around to ask questions about the configuration. Our CEO Pat Gelsinger even stopped by for a quick photo!
