The File Server profile represents typical file server workloads. This profile tests a wide variety of different file sizes simultaneously, with an 80% read and 20% write distribution.

 

8 drives averages 3,200 IOPS at QD256, 5 drives provide 2,150 IOPS and 3 drives weigh in at 1,430 IOPS.

The Emailserver profile is very demanding 8K test with a 50% read and 50% write distribution. This application is indicative of the performance of the solution in heavy write workloads.

 

This heavy mixed read/write workload exhibits the more variability than the other tests. The 8-drive array provides an average of 1,350 IOPS at QD256, the 5-drive array provides 898 IOPS and the 3-drive array provides 713 IOPS.
