Mellanox Achieves Record Performance in Virtualization Using OCZ Talos 2R SSDs
June 12, 2012
OCZ's Talos 2R SAS 6Gbps SSDs have been used by Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. to achieve a new record of application performance and efficiency for a remote file system, database and virtualized data center with its RDMA technology for InfiniBand running Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V.
"The record performance demonstrated in the benchmark, solves the performance bottlenecks that frequently occur in the modern virtualized data center that are due to the exponential growth in the number of Virtual Machines (VM) per physical server. A higher number of randomized I/O requests can now be served when using Windows Server® 2012 SMB Direct to access data on a remote file server and database that resides in the cloud."
"The new performance results were established using the new Microsoft SMB Direct protocol implemented in Windows Server 2012 RC running over Supermicro Servers and JBODs, OCZ’s Talos-2R SSDs and LSI® MegaRAID® SAS 9285 storage controllers enabled with LSI Fast Path I/O acceleration software, all connected by Mellanox’s InfiniBand interconnect solution."
