IOmark and Evaluator Group, Inc. announce audited benchmark results for HP StoreVirtual 4335, a hybrid, scale-out converged storage appliance. The HP StoreVirtual 4335 was tested using the IOmark-VM benchmark for VM workloads.
The audited IOmark-VM results show the HP StoreVirtual 4335 was able to support 152 simultaneous virtual applications at an average cost of $542.22 per application using a 2-node configuration. Cost information utilized list pricing to determine cost per instance.
IOmark-VM tests real world workloads by recreating multiple instances of a standard set of virtual applications, driving actual I/O streams rather than simulations or synthetic workloads. IOmark-VM measures a standard set of applications running in a VM environment. The results are audited to ensure uniform testing and reporting of results. This enables IT users to compare products using metrics that matter: price, capacity and application performance.
