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 Xe lags behind the other two drives with an average of 478 IOPS; the AL13SE averages 514 IOPS at QD256, and the v7 leads with an average of 527 IOPS.
The v7 takes a slight lead in latency performance.
The Xe sucks a miserly 7 watts, but it loses its only efficiency test during our regimen.
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 leads to an average of 363 IOPS from the WD Xe. The AL13SE wins with an average of 391 IOPS, beating the 383 IOPS from the v7.
The WD Xe consumes only 7.22 watts during the test.
The difference between drives is nearly indistinguishable in the power and efficiency testing.
