RAID 0 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. 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 HighPoint Technologies Rocket 750 averages a respectable 82,900 IOPS at 256 OIO in an OLTP environment.




RAID 0 Web Server






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 Rocket 750 averages 80,048 IOPS at 256 OIO.




RAID 0 Email Server






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


The Rocket 750 averages 79,947 IOPS as 256 OIO.
