Storage Design Design Storage Solution for New Application (words as required) Scenario An organization is deploying a new business application in their environment. The new application requires 1TB of storage space for business and application data. During peak workload, application is expected to generate 4900 IOPS (I/O per second) with typical I/O data block size of 4KB. The vendor available disk drive option is 15,000 rpm drive with 100 GB capacity. Other specifications of the drives are: Average Seek time = 5 millisecond and data transfer rate = 40 MB/sec. You are required to calculate the required number of disk drives that can meet both capacity and performance requirements of an application. Hint: In order to calculate the IOPS from average seek time, data transfer rate, disk rpm and data block size refer slide 28 in week 6 lecture slide. Once you have IOPS, refer slide 29 in week 6 to calculate the required number of disks. 5.
