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.
The Seagate V.6 averages 402 IOPS at QD256.
The Seagate V.6 offers up a wide range of access time, much like the other HDDs.
The Seagate V.6 again roughly matches the Toshiba 15K at our power measurements with 6.28 Watts.
The V.6 averages 63 IOPS per Watt.
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 Seagate Enterprise Performance V.6 averages 60 MB/s at QD256.
The V.6 nearly matches the Toshiba 15K in latency distribution during the test period.
The V.6 averages 6.38 Watts.
The Seagate V.6 averages 60 IOPS per Watt.
