flops

 (flŏps) or flop (flŏp)
n. pl. flops
A measure of the speed of a computer in operations per second, especially arithmetic operations involving floating-point numbers. Often used in combination: gigaflops; teraflop.

Through this process, IceWEB was able to determine that both the Talos 2 and Deneva 2 SSDs from OCZ provided the best read/write IOPS performance, included high reliability and endurance tools to extend usable drive life, and leverages a product roadmap to enable growth within the IceWEB unified platform.
The Intel SSD 520 uses an LSI SandForce Flash Storage Processor with an Intel co-defined and validated firmware release, to create an SSD, delivering up to 80,000 maximum 4K random write Input-Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) and up to 50,000 4K random read IOPS to speed through every day operations.
The SSDs feature random sustained 90,000 read and 17,000 write IOPS and sequential sustained 510MBps read and 230MBps write throughput.
The eight-port ROC delivers performance levels up to 400,000 random IOPS in RAID 5, 6 and 10 configurations.
The E Series' higher IOPS means enterprises need significantly fewer SSDs compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), which also leads to energy savings in a server environment.
