Whitepaper: "Comparing the Performance and Power of Dell VRTX and HP c3000".
Following the release of Dell PowerEdge VRTX this month at the Dell
Enterprise Forum in San Jose, DELL-Brian Ba has decided to help those who are
interested by Power of Dell VRTX and HP c3000 solutions.
Therefore, DELL-Brian Ba has produced a whitepaper (pdf) titled "Comparing the Performance and Power of Dell VRTX and HP
c3000". The whitepaper aims to compare fairly the performance and
power consumption of the two solutions, and also compares ease of management,
pricing, and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
According to him the VRTX solution, with its high performance direct-attach
storage, scored 36% more Transactions per Second (TPS) running SQL 2012, and
79% more IOPs when running the Exchange 2013 / Jetstress 2013 workload compared
to the c3000-based solution.
‘’The power draw comparison was also a win for VRTX, with the Dell solution
drawing 152 watts less power than the c3000 solution when running the Exchange
2013 / Jetstress 2013 workload. As configured, the Dell solution cost 26% less
to buy, and its shared storage can be set up in just 15 steps, compared to 193
steps for the HP solution's shared storage based on D2200sb storage blades and
their bundled HP StoreVirtual VSA software. And, the shared storage in
the VRTX can be shared with multiple server nodes, allowing Hyper-V Live
Migration and ESXi vMotion without the need for the complexities of a SAN.’’ Said
