A server's job is to run applications as fast as it can, and it looks like flash memory is becoming an essential ingredient in the race for speed. Server-maker Cisco has just bagged a VMmark benchmark for doing just that – in its case using networked Violin Memory flash storage – paving the way to all performance-focused servers …
Yet again, another stupid retarded benchmark from one of the big players.
A Violin Mem V6000 costs about $500k
A 2-socket server can be had from $5k
And a Cisco Server 2S using a Violin Mem V6000 scored good points . lol - Given the price they should at least try connecting 100 servers to it for a comparison that is not completely retarded.
11.30@10 tiles is way higher than 11.13@10 tiles(DL360pGen8)? I'd call that just a little bit higher, not way higher.
