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.

Plextor has an interesting way of advertising their SSDs, calling them server class controllers. That doesn't mean your Plextor SSD is ready to take on the best from STEC or Pliant (now part of SanDisk), but under some circumstances we can see the M5S making an appearance in servers.
