Flash storage vendors provide benchmark data with "hero" IOPS numbers that don't mean anything.
What you need is your potential flash vendor to show a direct comparison between mechanical based storage and flash based storage.
The following benchmarks provide a direct like-for-like comparison between our mechanical storage and our flash storage.
Be careful of benchmarks that were run directly on the storage system. Benchmarking should be run from a network client.
