Abstract: 

Gus Malek-Madani, Founder and CTO, Green Platform Corporation, will share 3 sets of test results that demonstrate how normal levels of data center vibration can degrade IOPS and throughput performance in HDDs by as much as 2/3. These tests also show how this lost storage performance can be restored by mitigating vibration.

Learning Objectives

Understand the Vibration Penalty on Spinning Storage
Understand how performance-killing vibration exacerbates the storage bottleneck in data centers
Understand the benefits of removing vibration
See empirical test results that substantiate the "Vibration Penalty"
