This ESG Lab report presents the results of a mixed workload performance benchmark test designed to assess the real world performance capabilities of an IBM Storwize V7000 storage system and IBM x3850 X5 servers in a VMware-enabled virtual server environment.
As it has been the trend over the last decade, organizations must continue to deal with growing data storage requirements with the same or less resources. The growing adoption of storage-as-a-service, business intelligence, and big data results in ever more Service Level Agreements that are difficult to fulfill without IT administrators spending ever longer hours in the data center. Many organizations now expect their capital expense growth for storage to be unstoppable, and see operating expense levers - such as purchasing storage systems that are easy to manage - as the only way to control data storage-related costs.
This brief presents the customer benefits of using Storwize V7000 storage systems with an Oracle 11g database. It discusses key customer challenges and how they can easily be met with the combined IBM solution.
