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.
Normally we shy away from making too many comments about the enterprise tests with the consumer drives and just let you guys observe the numbers. There are a couple of reasons for this. The first is some of the enterprise guys wouldn't like us telling you that the consumer models are in many cases just as fast as the enterprise models. Also, many of the changes from the enterprise models have to do with testing, reliability and enterprise features such as Host Power Loss Protection.
Ever since out visit to LSI's AIS event a few months ago, we've paid more attention to the enterprise market. At AIS we learned that several datacenters had already deployed consumer grade SSDs in their drive bays. Given the ultra-low cost of consumer SSDs compared to enterprise SSDs, this really isn't a surprise, because we would do it too now that the technology is more reliable.
The Comay Venus Pro 3 takes things a step further and merges the power features of an enterprise SSD with the standard MLC flash found on consumer drives. The end result is a good mix between price, performance and protection.
