CPS Rack

Microsoft Cloud Platform System (CPS) Rack

CPS is an integrated, ready-to-run private cloud solution for your datacenter, powered by Dell hardware and Microsoft cloud software. CPS maximizes the economic benefits of a software-designed datacenter when operating cloud services. A layer of software abstraction across the physical layers – storage, network and compute – enables separation of the fabric from the tenant services that run on top of it. Windows Azure Pack provides a consistent self-service approach that is common between Microsoft Azure and CPS. System Center provides the administrative controls and Windows Server provides the platform for virtualizing a wide range of computing services. The entire solution is pre-configured before arriving at your loading dock, offering a turnkey private cloud solution.

This paper provides an overview of storage-focused performance of a single rack CPS stamp in the following three scenarios, scaled across a deployment of tenant virtual machines (VMs):

  • Scenario 1. Boot storm: cold start of VMs.
  • Scenario 2. VM microbenchmarks: synthetic storage loads that are generated within VMs.
  • Scenario 3. VM database OLTP: simulated database online transaction processing (OLTP) using Microsoft SQL Server, run within the VMs.
