Benchmarks - Random and Sequential Workloads
Our 4K Random read/write workload consists of sixteen threads all at QD16, results our measured in IOPS (Input Output Operations per Second).
Above, we can see the 5Big Thunderbolt excel in random write IOPS in RAID 0 with a result of 1374 IOPS. Furthermore, the 5Big does quite well with random read in both RAID 0 and RAID 1.
Our sequential read/write workload is centered on 1MB transfer sizes again with sixteen threads and a queue depth of 16.
Here we see more of the great performance of the 5Big Thunderbolt, especially in RAID 0 sequential read and write.
