WD Red and WD Se NAS HDD Enterprise RAID Report

By: Paul Alcorn | HDDs in Storage | Posted: Oct 9, 2013 2:01 pm

RAID 0 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 Se array averages 684 IOPS at QD256, while the Red array averages 580 IOPS.





RAID 0 Webserver


The Red array again delivers excellent performance at the lower latency ranges.




The Webserver profile is a read-only test with a wide range of file sizes. Web servers are responsible for generating content for users to view over the internet, much like the very page you are reading. The speed of the underlying storage system has a massive impact on the speed and responsiveness of the NAS, and thus the end-user experience.


The WD Se array averages 575 IOPS to the 504 IOPS from the Red array.
