SPC Announces Storage Benchmark

SHARE

At the Computer Measurement Group (CMG) Annual Conference this week The Storage Performance Council (SPC) announced SPC-1(TM), an industry-standard benchmark for enterprise storage systems.

The SPC said the new benchmark gives customers a clearly applicable, vendor-neutral process to accurately compare and configure direct attach or network storage technology. In additon, the SPC has constructed a complete multi-platform test kit for SPC-1 that quickly evaluates performance and price/performance using a variety of storage network topologies.

The SPC is an industry standards organization that defines and promotes storage benchmarks as well as disseminates what it says is objective, relevant and verifiable performance data and related test tools to the computer industry and its customers. Its members include Adaptec, Compaq, Dell, The Evaluator Group, Hitachi Data Systems, IBM, Ideas International, LSI Logic Storage Systems, NEC, Sun MicroSystems, Unisys and VERITAS Software.
