I am trying to understand the storage requirements of some of the common workloads in terms of their maximum burst IOPS/GB and maximum sustained throughput/GB. I plan to use this data to choose a storage system either on-premise or on-cloud that could meet these peak performance requirements. The workload types I am interested in are OLTP databases, NoSQL, BigData Analytics, High performance computing, media streaming, backup/archive and departmental file shares. Could someone share their knowledge on what the general ballparks around burst IOPS/GB and max throughput/GB for these use cases are. Or if you could point me to resources that can give me this information, I’d really appreciate it.
