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. Databases are the bread and butter of many enterprise deployments. These demanding 8k random workloads with a 66 percent read and 33 percent write distribution bring even the best solutions down to earth.
The Seagate 600 Pro averages 18,278 IOPS. The Micron M500DC tops the chart with an average of 21,133 IOPS, and the Intel DC S3500 averages 19,400 IOPS at 256 OIO. The 600 Pro experiences the largest amount of variability with this workload.
The 600 Pro averages 2.04 watts. The M500DC averages 2.76 watts, and the DC S3500 averages 3.76 watts.
The 600 Pro leads convincingly with 9,286 IOPS-per-Watt. The M500DC averages 7,676 IOPS-per-Watt, and the DC S3500 averages 4,040 IOPS-per-Watt.
The Web Server profile is a read-only test with a wide range of file sizes. Web servers are responsible for generating content users 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 hosting the website.
The Seagate 600 Pro averages 27,669 IOPS. The M500DC doesn't fare nearly as well and averages 18,650 IOPS, falling to the DC S3500's average of 23,664 IOPS.
The 600 Pro averages 2.91 watts. The M500DC averages 3.21 watts, and the DC S3500 requires 3.8 watts during the Web Server workload.
The Seagate 600 Pro averages 2,477 IOPS-per-Watt. The M500DC scores 1,965 IOPS-per-Watt, and the DC S3500 averages 749.
