Many users complain that I/O Meter is too complicated of a benchmark to replicate results so my quest to find an alternative was started. Passmark has added several multi-user tests that measure a hard drives ability to operate in a multi-user environment.

 

 

The tests use different settings to mimic basic multi-user operations as they would play out on your server. Variances is read / write percentage as well as random / sequential reads are common in certain applications, Web Servers read nearly 100% of the time while Database Servers write a small amount of data.

 

The Workstation test is the only single user environment and will be similar to how you use your system at home.

Our sever, nearline and workstation tests are where the E7K1000 is targeted for the market. Here we see that the drive does a very good job against the competition and is the fastest 7,200 RPM drive when it comes to the Web Server test.
