SPC Results provide a source of comparative storage performance information that is objective, relevant, and verifiable. That information will provide value throughout the storage product lifecycle, which includes development of product requirements, product implementation, performance tuning, capacity planning, market positioning, and purchase evaluations. SPC benchmarks are designed to be vendor/platform independent and are applicable across a broad range of storage configuration and topologies. Any vendor should be able to sponsor and publish an SPC Result, provided their tested configuration satisfies the requirements of the appropriate SPC benchmark specification.
There are currently four SPC benchmarks and two SPC benchmark extensions, which have been released. A brief overview of each benchmark and benchmark extension appears below. The Overview link will access the overview information on this page. The Results link will display the SPC Results page for the associated benchmark.
