How Many IOPS Is Enough?

Presented by

Tom Coughlin, Coughlin Associates and Jim Handy, Objective Analysis

About this talk

There are lots of SSDs on the market today offering IOPS (I/Os Per Second) performance in the thousands to hundreds of thousands, with indications that future models will offer speeds in the million-IOPS range. Meanwhile HDDs support from tens to hundreds of IOPS, depending on spindle speed and interface. Not every application can use the extreme performance of high-end SSDs, and some may not benefit from high IOPS at all. Since performance is tied to cost, users can save money if they understand how many IOPS the system really needs. This webinar will draw from the recent study by Coughlin Associates and Objective Analysis that examined what makes an application require high IOPS and which profiled applications according to their needs.
