DELL AX4-5 Application Performance: A Comparison of Entry-Level Storage Platforms
This paper compares the performance of the Dell AX4-5 storage system to its nearest competitors. The AX4-5 is designed to bring the benefits of storage consolidation to small businesses and to the smaller dispersed data centers of larger organizations. This paper takes a workload approach to compare the performance of entry-level storage systems. The workload approach simulates a storage system's performance in a production environment. It avoids the 'Synthetic' and possibly misleading results of benchmark programs.
