IBM Storwize V7000
Abstract: This test plan includes collecting and validating the storage total I/O operations per second (IOPS) and read/write latencies on an Epic/IBM test server and IBM midrange storage platform, in this instance a new IBM Storwize V7000 storage system. The test cases will provide measurement of the different storage characteristics when using various configurations outlined in the following sections, utilizing server and storage hardware in IBM’s Tucson lab. Epic production (OLTP) database load simulation will be conducted using tools provided by Epic. The results of this testing should provide Epic technical personnel some guidance on the ‘usability’ of an IBM Storwize V7000 for future customer implementations.
