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.
There is a very thin line that separates the Mushkin Chronos Deluxe from many of the enterprise drives we've seen with SF-2500 controllers. The 2500 and 2200 are physically identical and only differ by the firmware and software programming. The 2500 is generally paired with the same Toshiba 3Xnm flash that Mushkin used on the Chronos Deluxe.
I can't really come out and say the Chronos Deluxe would make a really good drive for your server tasks since it doesn't have the SuperCap for data retention during a power failure, but if you have a battery backup on your system... You know, just pointing out the facts here... 90K IOPS rating, long life, high endurance Toshiba Toggle Mode flash. That may be close enough for some.
