we are a video editing firm.
we are planning to implement a storage solution from DELL. where we will store our files.
the designers will edit the file stored on the storage box. (equalogic)
so dell requesting us to advice on how many IOPS and bandwidth Adobe Apps require based on the below scenarios:
· Scenario 1: 1 PC connected utilizing the maximum resources
· Scenario 2: 20 PCs connected simultaneously utilizing the maximum resources
· Scenario 3: 50 PCs connected simultaneously utilizing the maximum resources
Note: we are using Dell workstation, connected to the storage box using Fiber.
appreciate if someone can help me answering this query.
Keep it simple. Forget about IOPS, since that only applies to webserver and similar environments. Only talk about sustained transfer rates.
These are GigaBYTES, not gigabits and does not take into account the overhead. Good luck with fiber connections. You will need a much better and faster solution. Maybe HP Storageworks has better alternatives.
is there any way that allow us to measure the IOPS ?
