Many users complain that I/O Meter is too complicated of a benchmark to replicate results so my quest to find an alternative was started. Passmark has added several multi-user tests that measure a hard drives ability to operate in a multi-user environment.

 

 

The tests use different settings to mimic basic multi-user operations as they would play out on your server. Variances is read / write percentage as well as random / sequential reads are common in certain applications, Web Servers read nearly 100% of the time while Database Servers write a small amount of data.

 

The Workstation test is the only single user environment and will be similar to how you use your system at home.

In my limited enterprise tests used for the consumer drive reviews the NuvoDrive NX doesn't break any performance records. In Biwin's documentation it sounds like Biwin is still thinking about marketing the NuvoDrive NX an enterprise drive.

 

After I finished with the NuvoDrive NX it was shipped over to Paul Alcorn, our new enterprise SSD reviewer for some tests. Look for his report to come out later this week. This will be the first time Paul and I compared my limited enterprise numbers to his full bore enterprise tests.
