Demartek Publishes Evaluation of EMC VNX8000 and XtremSW Cache

ARVADA, CO--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2013) - Demartek announces its evaluation of the EMC VNX8000 and EMC XtremSW Cache.

"This evaluation by Demartek clearly illustrates the power of Flash intelligently deployed in both the storage and the server," said Jon Siegal, Sr. Director for USD at EMC. "The VNX8000 with MCx (multi-core optimization) can comfortably consolidate virtualized mixed workloads -- OLTP and Data Warehousing -- revolutionary in the midrange. The addition of XtremSW Cache 2.0 further improves performance and response times -- critical for these database workloads."

"In this mixed OLTP and Data Warehousing environment, the EMC VNX8000 very impressively handled the workload from 16 different database servers concurrently," said Dennis Martin, Demartek President. "The addition of EMC XtremSW Cache not only significantly accelerated the database OLTP workload in the servers where it was deployed, but because of this offload effect, the other workloads were also improved, increasing total IOPS and significantly reducing latency."
