Consumer (Samsung and OCZ) vs. Enterprise (SMART Optimus) SSD Performance Analysis - Fileserver and Emailserver

Consumer (Samsung and OCZ) vs. Enterprise (SMART Optimus) SSD Performance Analysis
We analyze consumer SSD performance in comparison to an enterprise SSD. Ever wondered what the difference is, besides the price? Read on! (KRX:005930, NASDAQ:SNDK, NASDAQ:OCZ)

Fileserver

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.

 

All three SSDs perform very closely in this testing.

The SSDs all perform closely in this test, with no latency results out of the range of our chart, and the Samsung 840 Pro enjoying a slight lead.

The 840 Pro and the Vector take a large lead in this test.

 

 

Emailserver

The Emailserver profile is a 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.

 

The heavy write workload provides the Optimus an advantage in this test.

The return of a write workload brings the latency penalties suffered by client SSDs back into the limelight. We can see the large distribution in the upper regions, but we also have a wide range of latency results off our chart. The 840 Pro has a number of results above 1000ms, and the Vector tops out at 800-1000ms. The Optimus tops out in the 20-40ms range.
