EMC VxRack Node powered by ScaleIO Review: Synthetic Performance Review (HCI)
We’ve spent a good deal of time talking about #EMC #ScaleIO ‘s capabilities in a two-layer, or storage online configuration. In this next series of the review, we break out results with ScaleIO set up as a hyper-converged system. It should be noted that ScaleIO can actually work in a third mode where it combines both of these options. Fundamental to the HC setup, though, is the fact that both the SDS (ScaleIO Data Server) and the SDC (ScaleIO Data Client) run in the same environment. In this configuration the applications and storage share the same compute resources. In our case, that means the #VxRack Node’s high-performance 2U 4-node PF100 chassis that resides in our lab.
