Inactive SPC-2 and SPC-2/E Results

SPC-2 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. The SPC-2 Benchmark is designed to be vendor/platform independent and are applicable across a broad range of storage configuration and topologies.

SPC Benchmark 2 (SPC-2)
SPC-2 consists of three distinct workloads designed to demonstrate the performance of a storage subsystem during the execution of business critical applications that require the large-scale, sequential movement of data. Those applications are characterized predominately by large I/Os organized into one or more concurrent sequential patterns. A description of each of the three SPC-2 workloads is listed below as well as examples of applications characterized by each workload.

  • Large File Processing: Applications in a wide range of fields, which require simple sequential process of one or more large files such as scientific computing and large-scale financial processing.
  • Large Database Queries: Applications that involve scans or joins of large relational tables, such as those performed for data mining or business intelligence.
  • Video on Demand: Applications that provide individualized video entertainment to a community of subscribers by drawing from a digital film library.

SPC Benchmark 2/Energy (SPC-2/E)
The SPC-2/E benchmark extension consists of the complete set of SPC-2 performance measurement and reporting plus the measurement and reporting of energy use. This benchmark extension provides measurement and reporting to complete storage configurations, complementing SPC-2C/E, which focuses on storage component configurations.

 In addition, the following information is available to aid in comparing SPC Results as well understanding status levels and categorization applicable for each SPC Result:

Listed below is a table of all inactive SPC-2 and SPC-2/E Results. Active SPC-2 and SPC-2/E Results are located on a separate website page.

Active/Inactive SPC Result

A new SPC Result is automatically designated as Active. An existing SPC Result may be designated as Inactive by the Test Sponsor. An Active SPC Result typically becomes Inactive when the Test Sponsor no longer supports all components that were priced in the SPC Result, but those components are available and supported via third-party suppliers. A Test Sponsor may also designate an existing SPC Result as Inactive in cases where the SPC Result references a product that has been superceded by a more recent model/version and may no longer be fully supported by the Test Sponsor.

The SPC Submission Identifier for each Inactive SPC Result will be updated with a trailing "i" to aid in identifying the Active/Inactive status of an SPC Result.

Inactive SPC Results may appear in publicly available materials prepared by the Test Sponsor subject all SPC Permitted Use requirements. The SPC Steering Committee must approve any public use of an Inactive SPC Result by an SPC member other than the Test Sponsor.

Active SPC-2 Results appear on a separate SPC Benchmark Results website page.

 

Storage Device Category

SPC Results are categorized, based on the type of storage devices used in the Tested Storage Configuration, as follows:

  • HDD:  All of the storage devices consist of hard disk drives (spinning media).
  • SSD:  All of the storage devices consist of solid state storage devices (SSDs).
  • Hybrid:  Each individual storage device consists of both HDD and SSD storage capacity.
  • A TSC configured with storage devices in more than one category will list each category.
    For example, a TSC configured with both hard disk drives and solid state devices will be listed as HDD+SSD.

 

Comparing SPC Results

When comparing SPC Results, the difference between the Tested Storage Configuration and the Tested Storage Product of each SPC Result must be considered.

Tested Storage Configuration (TSC)
The TSC consists of all storage hardware and software used to produce an SPC Result. Included in the TSC are all storage devices, controllers/adapters, enclosures, storage software, etc. The TSC represents a complete storage solution.

Tested Storage Product (TSP)
The TSP is a distinct, customer orderable storage product, which is the focal point of an SPC Result. Each SPC Result is labeled with the formal name of the TSP. The TSP may essentially be identical to the Tested Storage Configuration. The TSP in those cases would typically include all of the storage hardware and software as a single customer orderable storage product. In other cases, the TSP may be a component of the Tested Storage Configuration such as a storage software product. In such cases, the Tested Storage Configuration consists of multiple, distinct customer orderable products including the TSP.

Accurate SPC Result Comparison
Comparison between SPC Results that only considers the Tested Storage Product may, in some cases, compare a total storage solution against a single component of a storage solution, which would be an inaccurate comparison. Accurate comparison of SPC Results compares the Tested Storage Configuration rather than the Tested Storage Product of each result, ensuring comparison between the total storage solution required to achieve each SPC Result.

 

SPC Peer Review Status

An SPC benchmark measurement becomes a new SPC Result upon successful completion of the required SPC Audit and SPC submission process. The new SPC Result is initially given a Submitted for Review status for a minimum of 60 days during which the SPC Peer Review occurs. The SPC Peer Review allows SPC members an opportunity to review the details of the new SPC Result and raise any compliance issues resulting from that review. If there are no compliance issues raised at the end of the SPC Peer Review, the status of the SPC Result will transition to an Accepted status. If compliance issues are raised during the SPC Peer Review and the SPC benchmark rResult is found to be compliant with the appropriate SPC specification, the status of the SPC Result will transition to an Accepted status. If the SPC Result is found to be non-compliant during the SPC Peer Review, the SPC Result will either be withdrawn or revised to become compliant and then will transition to an Accepted status.

 

Revision Status

A Test Sponsor may voluntarily submit a revised Full Disclosure Report (FDR) to update pricing, component availability, or any other allowable change to an existing SPC Result. A Test Sponsor may also be required to submit a revised FDR to address confirmed compliance issues that were identified during the SPC Peer Review of an existing SPC Result. All revisions will be listed in the Key Dates and Revision Information section of the FDR and Executive Summary.

 

Withdrawn Status

An SPC Result may be withdrawn voluntarily by the Test Sponsor or as directed by the SPC. Each withdrawn SPC Result will be placed in one of the following three categories:

  • Withdrawn 1: The SPC Result was voluntarily withdrawn by the Test Sponsor without any compliance issues raised concerning the SPC Result. This action is typically taken when an existing SPC Result references a product that is no longer supported or has been superceded by a more recent model/version.

  • Withdrawn 2: The SPC Result was withdrawn by the Test Sponsor after one or more compliance issues were raised during the SPC Peer Review. The SPC Result was withdrawn prior to resolution of the compliance issue(s).

  • Withdrawn 3: The SPC Result was withdrawn by the SPC after being ruled non-compliant with the appropriate SPC specification.

A withdrawn SPC Result will remain on the SPC Benchmark Results website pages for 120 days from the date of withdrawal and may be publicly referenced during that period as a withdrawn SPC benchmark result. At the end of the 120-day period, the withdrawn SPC Result will be removed from the SPC Benchmark Results website pages and is no longer considered a SPC Result and should not be referenced as such.
