Superior Performance at a Lower Price Point April 24, 2012,
Volume 170, Issue 4
Comparing the Oracle 7420 ZFSSA against Netapp, EMC/Isilon and HDS solutions, Darius Zanganeh has found the 7420 to be dramatically faster (and at a lower price point) than the competition on the SPEC SFS benchmark. In fact, the 7420 delivered 40% more performance than the Netapp 6240, he writes. Even in terms of latency, Zanganeh explains further, the 7420 demonstrated a response rate over 2X faster than the 6240.
