NexGen Storage 3 Months Later

Posted by James Gunnarson on Mar 29, 2013 12:20:47 PM
Well my verdict is out.  I have come to the conclusion that NexGen Storage has succeeded in providing a well designed high performance storage system.  I have yet to crack 5% IOP utilization on our n5 -150.   With an average IOP utilization of around 2% what am I to do with the other 147,000 IOPS?   For those that think I am not throwing enough at it you are quite mistaken.  The workload is almost double of what we had on our previous system that was tanking and cost more than NexGen with a quarter of the storage capacity.  It will definitely be interesting to see what it will look like once we start to roll out a VDI pilot later this summer.
