HighPoint RocketRAID 2760 Switch Architecture PCI-E x16 24-Port SAS/SATA 6Gb/s Controller - Benchmarks - Passmark

HighPoint has something special here; something capable of transferring a dual layer DVD's worth of data in just one second. We make the most of what this controller is capable of thanks to Crucial sending over 24 RealSSD C300 drives.

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.

Most users looking to use the HighPoint RocketRAID as configured today will be using it in a server environment. Here we see very impressive results and unlike the Windows tests the smaller chunk size does help in situations like these. When it comes to the file and web server tests, the 2760 just crushed everything else we tested it against and delivered results that are twice as high as anything we had ever seen before, including the Fusion-io ioDrive.
