that's getting used to wipe the floor with if I ever saw one
it's really surprising that other vendors completely surrendered
Chinese array and IT systems supplier Huawei has set a new SPC-1 performance record, snagging it five out of the top six results. Using its OceanStor Dorado18000 V3 array, Huawei scored 7,000,565 SPC-1 IOPS with a price/performance rating of $376.96 per thousand IOPS. The next three results are all Huawei too; 6,000,572 IOPS …
EMC have not come up with a proper new product for ages (VNX is just a rebadge Clariion) and still rely on decades old designs that have been patched and bent to fit with market expectations but are hobbled shams, with artifical limitations that that allow them upsell you, they have even killed of the good stuff they bought from elsewhere.
NetApp are not much better, though they at least admit they are a software company that does hardware.
HP are the same as EMC except they killed theyhardware and sell the bought in stuff.
The rest are just pitching to HCI market where the big money is.
I think the simple facts are around the relevancy of SPC-1 in an all flash era.
Every all flash array has more iops than what is needed and what the app workloads can drive..
The common bottlenecks are now outside the storage ... at long last
They are now in the apps and the humans!
...so... it doesn't have the relevancy compared to the HDD era...
RIP HDD ... we loved you once!
