Fresh and fast little flashers from NetApp

question is how many people make decisions based on the SPC1 results?

Over the last 15 years I've not met a single person who bought because of it. It's a good benchmark for vendors to thump their chests and celebrate.

SPC1 has become rather irrelevant especially with Flash and newer NVM technologies coming up. It's even more irrelevant when normal operational activities are not taken into consideration. Things like snapshots or snapshot deletes or node failure events to allow people to ascertain the impact. You know...the things that happen in a data center daily.

Btw...Why didn't NetApp use the newer SPC1 version v3 but elected to post a result on the publishing deadline of the old version?
