Everest Ultimate and Corporate Edition offer several different benchmarks for testing and optimizing your system or network. The Random Access test is one of very few if not only that will measure hard drives random access times in hundredths of millisECOnds as oppose to tens of millisECOnds.

The average read access time for both controllers is about the same, but the 9280-8E has a tendency to spike a little higher than the Areca.

The write access times were also impressive on the 9280-8E and we saw little variation across the arrays.

 

Let's see how all of these synthetic benchmarks relate to real world applications.
