A video link given at the end of this article will help you understand the things better. Do have a look after you finish the article. The video is about StorONE Virtual Appliance Performance. I am covering here in this article the same along with StorONE’s recent partnership with Seagate that aims to maximize SSD Performance Specs. Basically, a unified virtual appliance with Seagate Drives is an ideal situation for I/O-intensive environments. On 25th June StorONE announces a unique achievement of record speeds using Seagate SSD drives and StorONE’s TRU™ S1 Software Defined Storage solution. StorONE, in fact, in this recent performance testing, combined Seagate’s enterprise-class SSDs with its software in a virtual appliance configuration. The combination, as a matter of fact, attained a breakthrough half a million IOPS with 24 SSDs provided by Seagate running an all enterprise-class data protection features.
For any such or similar kind of environment what matters most is the seamless throughput. In this particular case, the high-availability, failure-proof VMware cluster attained this phenomenal throughput on random reads (4K) and 180,000 IOPS on random writes (4K). The latency in both cases was less than 0.2 milliseconds. This is a significant achievement as it eliminates the storage performance issues arising due to server virtualization. That makes the StorONE Unified Virtual Appliance configuration with Seagate drives a unique and most appropriate preposition. In this case, StorONE software runs in an ESXi VM that doesn’t require any complicated setup or configuration. It’s a simple environment that uses very little memory and compute. In fact, it doesn’t require any high-end server configurations, huge memory caches, or any other expensive hardware components. This virtual appliance can support all major hypervisor environments that include VMware, Oracle VM, Hyper-V, or KVM.

Virtual Appliance Performance

Ravi Naik, CIO and SVP Corporate Strategy at Seagate, says, “ StorONE’s software elicits the extreme performance of our SSDs in meeting the needs of mission-critical applications. With StorONE’s software, users can achieve the maximum utilization of resources from our solid-state drives, getting the best possible TCO via optimized storage capacity and performance.”

Gal Naor, StorONE co-founder, and CEO says, “Seagate drives offer superior drive design and reliability for enterprise use, and our tests show they offer performance beyond their competitors. We are very proud to have the world’s leading data solutions company as an early investor and partner, on whose drive technology we can reach incredible throughput and deliver all essential data services for managing and protecting data.”
