Solid-State Drives (SSDs) are a frequently discussed topic in current IT infrastructures. In many cases the investment of replacing hard drives is taken on the assumption that SSDs are generally faster. But it depends on various parameters whether or not this assumption is true for a specific system. This talk will dive into the topics of I/O performance and discuss I/Os per second, throughput and latency. It will also present the Open Source performance suite TKperf which uses the Flexible I/O Tester (Fio) in the background. Covering the needs described above it brings performance testing to a next level. TKperf implements the tests specified in the SNIA “Solid State Storage (SSS) Performance Test Specification (PTS) Enterprise v1.0”, fulfilling all of its reporting requirements.
