A picture really does say a thousand words.

At TechEd Europe last week, we showcased Windows Server 2012 Hyper-v delivering over 1 million IOPS from a single virtual machine!

  • What kind of storage was that running on?

  • I'll find out for you and post an update

  • Thank you - i will look forward to it!

  • Hi Marc, the supporting infrastructure for this demo was:

    1. Industry standard 4 socket server with 80 logical processors, 4 socket server, 10 cores with SMT enabled

    2. 256 GB of physical memory

    3. 1 VM configured with 64 virtual processors and 64 GB of memory

    4. 5 LSI Mustang 9205-8e Storage HBAs, 40 SSDs total (each SSD is capable of over 25,000 IOPs)

    Each LSI controller has 8 SSDs attached. No SANs were used. This was all direct attached storage.

  • Thats some setup! thanks for the info.
