The email server workload is a demanding 8K test with a 50% read and 50% write distribution. This application is indicative of the performance in heavy write workloads.

 

The SAS v4 averages 286 IOPS, the SATA v4 averages a leading 292 IOPS, and the HGST Ultrastar He6 averages 256 IOPS.

The He6 continues the theme of lower power consumption yielding excellent IOPS to Watts performance.
