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 SSD's 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 KingFast F3 Plus 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 KingFast F3 Plus averages 35,584 IOPS at QD 256, slightly edging out the SuperSSpeed S301, but falling to the Optimus.

The F3 Plus delivers 5,553,504 I/O's (52.2%) at 6-8ms, 2,370,488 I/O's (22.2%) at 4-6ms, and 2,288,988 I/O's (21.5%) at 8-10ms.

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 website, and thus the end-user experience.

 

The KingFast F3 Plus falls into a similar performance range with the S301, providing an average of 22,074 IOPS at QD 256.

The F3 Plus provides 5,154,601 I/Os (78%) in the 10-20ms range, and 1,346,964 I/Os (20.4%) in the 8-10ms range.
