Cirrus™ 1200

Advatronix® - PROformance to the MAX

Advatronix® Engineers rely on Iometer to test the limits of the storage subsystem of their servers. Originally developed by Intel® Iometer is an I/O subsystem measurement and characterization tool for single and clustered systems. More information on Iometer can be found at www.iometer.org

The Cirrus™ 1200 was subjected to exhaustive testing in order to simulate the workload pattern of different types of real world servers. Advatronix® Engineers were very pleased with the results. A quick recap is tabulated below.

The simulations were observed using the Cirrus™ 1200 in conjunction with 12 1TB SATA HDD's spinning at 10K. The RAID controller's stripe size was set to 256K and the read/write cache was turned on with a ZMM.
