This white paper presents solid state disks as a cost-effective way to improve application performance. Traditional hard disk based systems incur performance penalty because of the high access times of hard disk drives. Solid state disks resolve this problem with low access times and high bandwidth.
Two landmark benchmarks are included to quantify this advantage: IOMeter benchmark results and Storage Performance Council SPC-1 IOPS results. These two benchmarks definitively demonstrate the ability of solid state disk to offer unparalleled performance at unbeatable price for performance and both can be re-created by users.
Companies who have implemented this technology make better use of their server infrastructure, support increasing concurrent user loads with low response times, and improve user satisfaction.
