SanDisk Optimus Eco Enterprise SAS SSD Review

SanDisk releases the Optimus Eco to target the read-intensive market; yet the Eco retains many similar characteristics of the Optimus SSDs.

Database/OLTP

This test emulates Database and On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) workloads. OLTP is 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 Eco averages 33,794 IOPS at QD256.

The Eco averages an impressive 5.39 Watts during the precondition run.

The Eco nudges past the original Optimus with 6,209 IOPS per Watt.

 

 

Webserver

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 Eco averages 19,587 IOPS at QD256, marking the only blemish on its performance in the test. The 1000E and original Optimus rise to the challenge. Much of this performance differential is due to the awesome performance of the 1000E in this pure read workload.

The Eco averages 2,591 IOPS per Watt, while the 1000E shows its considerable strength in this pure read workload.
