Passmark Advanced Multi-User Tests

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.

The SandForce SF-1200 was bred from the enterprise class SF-1500 controller that was designed specifically for server use. Here we see how this heritage has made the A-DATA SF-1200 a real contender in the server market even though the consumer version was never designed for usage in this market. This has to have the companies that build products specifically for this market a little worried since a 380 Dollar drive is able to outperform their purpose built products costing two and sometimes three times more.
