Understand the performance of Flash and SSDs when deployed in high-end storage

This paper was first submitted to the 2016 CMG imPACt conference and won the Best Paper Award.

SSDs and other flash based storage provide unparalleled performance. But how well are they performing in high-end storage?

This paper analyzes the performance of Flash and SSDs when deployed in high-end storage, using RMF measurements from production systems and shows that the native latencies of around 0.1 ms for enterprise SSDs and Flash are not realistic expectations for actual back-end response times in a storage system. The insights presented in this paper are important for performance analysts to draw correct conclusions.
