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 HYDRA delivers 45,797 IOPS at QD256, in comparison to 34,316 IOPS from a single drive.

The Hydra once again manages to best the latency of a single drive in this test.

 

 

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 HYDRA averages 27,426 IOPS in this read-centric test, while the single drive provides 23,386 IOPS.
