File Server

The File Server profile represents typical file server workloads. This profile tests a wide variety of different file sizes simultaneously, with an 80 percent read and 20 percent write distribution.

 

The AL13SE averages 514 IOPS at QD256, while the v7 leads with an average of 527 IOPS.

The v7 takes a slight lead in latency performance.

The AL13SE and the v7 end up with remarkably similar performance characteristics in the power and efficiency category.

 

 

Email Server

The Email Server profile is a very demanding 8k test with a 50 percent read and 50 percent write distribution. This application is indicative of the performance of the solution in heavy write workloads.

 

This heavy write workload brings the AL13SE a win with its average of 391 IOPS besting the 383 IOPS from the v7.

The AL13SE once again exhibits great performance in write-centric random workloads with more commands serviced in the lower latency range.

The difference between drives is once again nearly indistinguishable in the power and efficiency testing.
