ATTO

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.47

 

ATTO is a timeless benchmark used to provide manufacturers with data used for marketing storage products.

Sequential read transfers max out at 1.43 GB/s. Sequential write transfers max out at 1.29 GB/s.

 

Sequential Write

Our MX200 array has the best small file transfer rates (0.5-4KB) of any of the array's on our chart.

 

Sequential Read

Our MX200 array does outperform our MX100 array, but overall its performance in this test is near the bottom of the field.

 

 

Anvil Storage Utilities

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1.0

 

Anvil's Storage Utilities is a storage benchmark designed to measure the storage performance of SSD's. The Standard Storage Benchmark performs a series of tests; you can run a full test or just the read or write test, or you can run a single test, i.e. 4k QD16.

Scoring

Anvil's scoring gives a good indication of an array's overall performance. Second only to the 850 Pro array, our MX200 array is coming on strong.

 

(Anvil) Random Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale

The random read performance of our MX200 array lays directly over our MX100 array; it's identical.

 

(Anvil) Random Write IOPS through Queue Scale

The vast majority of random writes occur at QD1-QD2 and this is where an MX200 array has no equal. Overall, this is the best performance we've seen from any array in this test. As we've stated many times, we feel random write performance at low QD is one most important performance metrics.
