Focus Areas:

SSD performance depends on the workload that it sees. IO streams are constantly changed as they traverse the IO stack such that IO streams generated in user (application) space differ from what the storage sees. Here, we look at a variety of real world workload captures and how these workloads affect SSD performance.

Learning Objectives

Understanding what real world workloads are
Seeing how real world workloads affect storage performance
Comparing workloads across different SSDs
