Everest Random Access Time
Everest Ultimate and Corporate Edition offer several different benchmarks for testing and optimizing your system or network. The Random Access test is one of very few if not only that will measure hard drives random access times in hundredths of millisECOnds as oppose to tens of millisECOnds.
The average read latency with the new firmware had our RAID 0 numbers running right where they were at before.
The write latency for the new firmware is lower than with the old firmware. Here we see quite a drop and when every millisecond counts, the results show that you would feel a difference in system response time.
Let's see how all of these synthetic benchmarks relate to real world applications.
