IDC's AFA Performance Testing Framework

Complete this form to download the report.


Read IDC's AFA Performance Testing Framework report where IDC discusses the important considerations in developing and executing a performance testing regimen against AFAs in end-user-focused proof-of-concept testing (rather than vendor development testing). 

The objective of this study is to provide a framework for testing AFAs. Flash media performs very differently than HDD-based media, exhibiting very different behaviors with respect to read/write I/O. Test plans and tools designed for use with HDD-based storage systems do not apply to AFAs and will produce results that do not accurately reflect the capabilities of AFAs in production use.

In short, real-world testing is the best and most accurate approach for assessing how an All-Flash Array will perform with your production workloads.
