I am having some serious performance issues when executing a simple script of SELECT INTO statements to perform table backups. I am using SQL 2014 in two different environments and each environment has different storage. I restored the same database on both environments. Environment A finishes the entire script of INTO statements in under 1 minute. While Environment B takes nearly 7 minutes. The storage in environment B is not bad by any means. I am getting a high number for Reads and Writes (b/sec) and low disk queue length and response time. I have the same DB settings in each environment also. Also most of the INTO statements are dealing with tables which have large text fields. I am new to performance tuning so I am looking for some guidance on where I can check to see what the cause of the slowness is on Environment B compared to A. Any suggestions that point me in the right direction will be appreciated.
