"Very often, it is very hard to get objective I/O performance results from your storage vendor. They use proprietary benchmarks or their benchmarks get tuned to their particular storage device. This makes it very hard to compare different products from different vendors. To overcome this, you can download one of the benchmarks for "open systems" we have here and then run it with different vendors' storage devices."
"Benchmark suites are most frequently designed for industrial evaluation of competitive computer systems and networks. Examples of such benchmark suites include SPEC, TPC, GPC, PERFECT Club Benchmarks, AIM benchmarks, and others. In addition to benchmark suites sponsored by consortia of computer industry there are various collections of benchmarks designed by research organizations, companies, computer magazines, and individuals for benchmarking specific hardware and software systems"
The System Performance Evaluation Cooperative (SPEC) was founded in 1988 by a small number of workstation vendors who realized that the marketplace was in desperate need of realistic, standardized performance tests. The key realization was that an ounce of honest data was worth more than a pound of marketing hype. SPEC has grown to become one of the more successful performance standardization bodies with more than 60 member companies. SPEC publishes several hundred different performance results each quarter spanning across a variety of system performance disciplines.
