Web applications are an integral part of Enterprise and small business IT offerings, and a robust storage backend for these applications is essential. VMware performance labs undertook testing of VMware vSAN”a distributed, virtualized storage product that leverages the speed of multiple solid-state drives (SSDs)”with the Cloudstone benchmark, which simulates typical Web 2.0 technology usage in the workplace. Tests show that vSAN performs exceptionally in a high concurrent user, work-heavy environment where applications maintain impressively low latencies even when handling increased IOPS under stressed configurations.
