Seagate 1.2TB Enterprise Performance 10K v7 Enterprise HDD Review - Database/OLTP and Webserver

TweakTown Rating: 91%Manufacturer: Seagate





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 HDDs 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 Enterprise Performance 10K v7 averages 395 IOPS at QD256, a difference of 7 IOPS in comparison to the 10K v6.






The Seagate 10K v7 averages 9.58 Watts during the test period.




The 10K v7 averages 40.87 IOPS per Watt in our Database/OLTP testing.







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 10K v7 averages 399 IOPS at QD256, trailing by a scant five IOPS to the 10K v6.






The 10K v7 averages 8.15 Watts during the test.




The Seagate 10K v7 averages 48.44 IOPS per Watt during the measurement window.
