One Million IOPs From A Single VM

I sometimes get questions from customers or partners about the capabilities of our VMs to be able to handle workloads that have a large amount of disk IO.  Last year we published the results of a 1 million IOPS from a single vSphere 5.0 host.  I talked to Chethan who was involved in that testing in one of the VROOM! Videos earlier this year.  

To further show that high IOPS can be achieved with vSphere we just recently published the results from a new test with a vSphere 5.1 host running a single VM that was able to exceed 1 million IOPS.  There is a short blog on VROOM! with a video that shows IOMeter running during the test and 1 million plus IOPs.

Cool stuff!
