Intel® SSD D7-P5510 3.84 TB Certification Report


The following certification report aims to present the results of various compatibility and performance tests run on the Intel P5510 3.84 TB NVMe Solid State Drive when used in combination with Open-E JovianDSS. A description of the testing methods used during those procedures will also be provided. The results, obtained from the aforementioned testing, along with technical specifications were used as the basis for recommendations on specific roles in which to use the device under test (DUT) in Open-E JovianDSS-based systems.

Testing Process

Validation was performed for both the Single node and HA non-shared storage cluster configurations. The tests were focused on the work of Intel SSD P5510 as a data disk for all-flash storage and compared to the performance of the previous P4510 model. Below we have described the tests of a raw device.

Random Read and Write Performance

In order to be able to properly interpret the results acquired from the tests of the Intel D7-P5510 drive while it was used as a data storage device for Open-E JovianDSS, it’s necessary to measure the raw performance of the device.

Chart 3

All performance tests carried out on a raw device showed proper operation at the hardware level in the test environment. The results obtained are at a level similar to those declared by the manufacturer. Compared to the P4510 NVMe drive, the DUT showed slightly higher random IO performance (34% increase on average) as well as on average 80% better results for sequential read and write cases.

Hardware specifications for HA non-shared storage cluster tests.

System name Tarox ParX R2242i G6 Server
Motherboard Intel S2600WFT
CPU 2x Intel Xeon Gold 5222
RAM 192 GB - 16x Micron MTA18ASF2G72PDZ-3G2E1 3200 MHz DDR416GB DDR4 ECC 16 GB
Storage devices 2x Intel D7-P5510 NVMe
4x Intel DC P4510
System Open-E JovianDSS up29r1 b44475


All-flash storage based on Intel D7-P5510 NVMe drives showed no compatibility issues with Open-E JovianDSS in either Single node or HA cluster configurations. Compared to the previous generation’s P4510, the new drives presented improved handling of random IO requests. Sequential write throughput was also notably improved while maintaining the same level of sequential read performance. As such, the tested device has been added to the Hardware Certification List and now has “Certified by Open-E” status.
