Demartek Publishes Evaluation of IBM and HP 6-Gbps SAS/SATA RAID Controllers
28 October 2009
With increasing demands on storage in popular application servers, the server manufacturers have begun to provide 6-Gbit/sec (Gbps) SAS RAID controllers as the standard RAID controllers. It is useful to understand how well these controllers work under sustained heavy loads, especially in real-world workload situations.
With this purpose in mind, IBM commissioned Demartek to test their standard 6-Gbps SAS RAID controller in one of their popular servers and compare its performance to the standard 6-Gbps SAS RAID controller provided by Hewlett Packard (HP) in one of their equivalent popular servers.
