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.

 

Exclusive Review of PhotoFast's G-Monster-PROMISE (1000MB/s) 128GB PCIe SSD

 

It is of no surprise that the PCIe SSD does well in the server tests since the PROMISE controller used in the card is designed for server use. I am surprised by the low performance of the workstation test which emulates power users in multitasking scenarios. The tests above show that the PCIe SSD is best suited for server intensive tasks.
