Power Consumption

 

Our custom power testing samples each drive for a period of three minutes across each workload. In order to offer more granularity, we sample the power in one-second intervals.

Here we have the power consumption for each RAID 0 array we used and tested. Above, you can see the number of drives scaling with power as expected. Four drives used a peak of 22 watts, and three drives used 17 watts. The single and two-drive array came in at 6 watts and 11.5 watts, respectively.
