The File Server profile represents typical file server workloads. This profile tests a wide variety of different file sizes simultaneously, with an 80% read and 20% write distribution.

 

The Kingston E100 averages 29,719 IOPS at QD256, which is again in the same performance range as the Intel and Micron SSD's.
