08 Oct 2010 Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array Delivers 17 GB/sec Sequential Read Throughput Performance [23551]
Measured with with PCI-Express SAS-2 HBAs Using Vdbench

Recently Oracle's Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array was put to the test. Two IO performance metrics were measured on the solid-state flash array using Vdbench 5.0. This is a disk and tape I/O workload generator for verifying data integrity and measuring performance of direct attached and network connected storage. The flash array delivered 17 GB/sec sequential read throughput performance for 1 MB transfers and 10 GB/sec write sequential throughput performance for 1 MB writes.
