Intel DC S3700 Enterprise SSD 8-Drive and 4-Drive RAID Report

We test RAID 0 and RAID 5 arrays of the high-performance Intel DC S3700 series enterprise SSDs in 4-drive and 8-drive configurations. (NASDAQ:INTC)

The 128K read sequential speeds reflect the maximum sequential throughput of the SSD using a realistic file size encountered in an enterprise scenario. The 8-drive array reaches a sequential read speed of 3,000 MB/s at QD128, while the 4-drive array peaks at 1,704 MB/s.

128k read latency reaches above 18ms under a heavy workload for the 8-drive array, and tops out at 10.75ms for the 4-drive array.

Without read caching enabled the 128K sequential performance is a bit disappointing, topping out at only 539 MB/s for the 8-drive array and 300 MB/s for the 4-drive array.
