heh, what I mentioned was just an example lol. do you run Mysql at home 24/7 now? well I sure don't and I am sure a lot of people don't as well, while they run bunch of other software almost all the time. vmware for fun or not I would say it is much more realistic for me for sure.
so far I only get a solution on how tests should be performed and no real reason as to why.. anyway, are you able to answer my questions?
question 1: your reviews showing samsung 840 pro with no OP perform better than s3700 and seagate 600 pro enterprise SSDs with heavy OP. I define "perform better" as simple as, better overall consistency, speed in 4k, sequential, read/write.
question 2: if sammy 840 pro is indeed better, the real reason I'd see it is long life on it's flash. is flash life the real reason for them to use it for enterprise work? or is the reason because of my 1st question the overall performance is just better?
I would like to mention that having a great benchmark score, or vantage score doesn't reflect to real performance. any test will have flaws and MarkLogic will be no exception. while I am only seeking the truth for real performance, testing storage devices over and over with the same test measure will only end up being targeted by manufacturer. they can alter in design, change in firmware, change in controller etc to get better performance out of your test results which is one thing I weigh a lot.
just curious, whens the last time you guys have replaced test measure with MarkLogic?
