NetApp World-Record Benchmark Result Shows 35% Performance Increase with Less Than Half the Infrastructure

NetApp Enables Companies for Future Growth and Innovation while Maintaining IT Efficiency

SUNNYVALE, Calif.—November 2, 2011 —NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) today announced six high-performing SPECsfs2008 NFS benchmark results, including a world record, further validating that NetApp customers don’t need to compromise efficiency and flexibility to achieve high performance. The speed of business has changed, and companies are required to be more agile than ever before, while keeping costs down. Innovative and value-conscious companies need to look at NetApp first for their high-performance storage needs.

News Facts

  • SPEC, the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation, is an independent nonprofit that was formed to establish, maintain, and endorse a broad set of standardized benchmarks. SPECsfs2008 measures file server throughput and response time.
  • NetApp conducted the SPECsfs2008 benchmarks on the NetApp® FAS6200 series, running on the Data ONTAP 8® operating system. These systems can be combined in a single unified cluster that enables customers to scale with data in place as their business grows.
  • The six new SPECsfs2008_nfs.v3 benchmark results demonstrate the leading NAS performance, linear scalability, and efficiency that NetApp storage solutions deliver to customers:
    • Performance. NetApp scalable storage architecture achieves world-record NFS performance for demanding NAS workloads with 1,512,784 ops per second and an overall response time of 1.53ms.
    • Scalability. NetApp linear scalability enables companies to start with solutions sized for their current storage requirements and massively scale to meet future demands. As nodes are nondisruptively added to the NetApp cluster, performance increases linearly and the system continues to provide the same fast response time. This highlights the future-ready scalability and flexibility of the NetApp clustered infrastructure running Data ONTAP 8, proven by the six new benchmark results with 4-, 8-, 12-, 16-, 20-, and 24-node clusters.
    • Efficiency. NetApp’s best-in-class efficiency, as compared to the public information related to the competitive product with the next highest SPECsfs2008 NFS result, is highlighted in the NetApp 24-node benchmark, which used 50% fewer disk drives and 80% fewer controller nodes while delivering 35% higher performance and 40% faster response time.
