Storage arrays, also known as disk arrays, is a data storage or disk storage system with multiple disk drives that are used for block-based, file-based, or object storage. Storage arrays usual contain hot-swappable components, including disk array controllers, cache in the form both volatile random access memory, or RAM, and non-volatile flash memory, disk enclosures for both solid-state electronic drives and rotational magnetic hard disk drives, and power supplies.
Storage arrays provide high resiliency, availability, and maintainability because they use many redundant components built into them so that there are few or no single points of failure or SPOFs, that would make the whole system stop working. Different types of storage arrays include network attached storage arrays and storage area network areas, which include modular storage area network arrays, monolithic storage area network arrays, and utility storage arrays.
This whitepaper shows the results of testing the Dell EMC VMAX All-Flash storage array, which was running on Dell PowerEdge servers when compared to the HPE storage array, which was running on the HPE ProLiant servers. If your company is looking for a new and better storage array or might be looking for one in the future, you should download this white paper.
To get the results presented in this report, both storage arrays were tested in a variety of ways. First, both storage arrays had an online transaction processing workload and a data mart load run in tandem and were tested on speed and database performance. This will help businesses keep their work going and save time during the intensive processes of handling online transaction processing and writing files to a data mart database. Database work has great importance to your company, and you should make sure you have the best storage array to handle large sets of data.
