IOmark is a storage specific workload and benchmark designed to test storage systems performance using a variety of real world, application centric workloads. The IOmark-VM benchmark is a specific workload, which measures Server Virtualization workloads (VMs) run against storage systems. Results are published after audit and certified approval by IOmark authorized auditors.
IOmark-VM-HC is a benchmark that certifies Hyper-Converged systems for virtual server results. The measurement criteria are storage performance, with the restriction that all storage workloads must be supported by the tested Hyper-Converged system. Although there are CPU and memory considerations, these aspects are not tested by the IOmark-VM workload.
This document is the official benchmark report for the tested configuration using HP ConvergedSystem 242-HC StoreVirtual appliance. The result of the benchmark showed the tested HP ConvergedSystem 242-HC StoreVirtual configuration supported 144 virtual machines at a cost of $977.08 per VM, meeting the storage response time requirements. In addition IOmark-VM requires several hypervisor operations as part of the benchmark, including “Clone and Deploy” and vMotion. HP ConvergedSystem 242-HC StoreVirtual met the required minimums for these operations as indicated.
