Database/OLTP

This test emulates Database and On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) workloads. OLTP is in essence the processing of transactions such as credit cards and high frequency trading in the financial sector. Enterprise SSDs are uniquely well suited for the financial sector with their low latency and high random workload performance. Databases are the bread and butter of many enterprise deployments. These are demanding 8K random workloads with a 66% read and 33% write distribution that can bring even the highest performing solutions down to earth.

 

As we begin to delve into our mixed workload benchmarks, it is important to note, again, that we test the Comay Pluto SC3 with 50% compressible data. OLTP and Database workloads tend to be highly compressible, so in real deployment performance may be higher than represented in these tests. Other workloads we test may also tend to have different compression ratios, so it is important to understand the workload and adjust purchasing decisions accordingly.

 

The Pluto SC3 averages 21,778 IOPS with a bit of variability, though not nearly as pronounced in pure write situations.

The Pluto SC3 provides 4,094,387 I/Os (62.8%) at 10-20ms, 1,681,827 I/Os (25.8%) at 8-10ms.

The SC3 averages 3.4 Watts during the precondition run.

The Pluto SC3 averages 6,372 IOPS per Watt, with the variability again lending some clutter to the chart. The Micron P400m averages 7,422, the Intel 9,418 and the Optimus 5,659 IOPS per Watt.

 

 

Webserver

The Webserver profile is a read-only test with a wide range of file sizes. Web servers are responsible for generating content for users to view over the internet, much like the very page you are reading. The speed of the underlying storage system has a massive impact on the speed and responsiveness of the server that is hosting the websites, and thus the end user experience.

 

The Pluto SC3 averages 18.476 IOPS at QD 256, below the other SSDs.

The SC3 provides 5,360,782 I/Os (97%) in the 10-20ms range.
