Best Practices for Configuring HDS VSP 5000 Series Performance
The design of the VSP 5000 series represents a significant modernization from prior VSP architectures. There are several key technology improvements in the VSP 5000 series:
- Introduction of a horizontally scalable clustering architecture of up to 12 controllers.
- Support for NVMe, which provides very low latency (less than 100 microseconds)
- Departing from custom ASICs and moving to more generic components in the front-end channel boards, the back-end disk boards, and the processor boards
- Relying on high speed PCIe3 fabric and field-programmable logic gateways to provide flexibility while reducing CPU overhead for all inter-node and intra-node traffic.
This whitepaper is written to help a user understand the architecture, the key performance metrics and the interpretation of key metrics for HDS’ high-end enterprise arrays, the HDS 5000 series.
