Two of the leading analysts in the storage business, Jim Handy The SSDGuy from Objective Analysis (who knows more about Flash from the component level than anyone I know) and Tom Coughlin (Who’s plugged in to the hard disk and entertainment businesses) are running a survey of IT professionals to get a rough idea of their IOPS requirements (real or imaginary – if they don’t know for sure a guess is good!) It’s broken into broad, “Orders of Magnitude” ranges:
Do you need a hundred?
Ten thousand? etc.
Take the survey at http://www.SurveyMonkey.com/s/KGKVR6X and help a couple of the good guys out.
