Database/OLTP

This test consists of 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 CloudSpeed Eco trails the other offerings in the OLTP workload.

The Eco falls into last place in the latency efficiency testing during this workload.

The chart gets muddy with several SSDs in close competition, but the higher power consumption of the Eco reduces its overall efficiency in the OLTP workload.

 

 

Web Server

The Web Server workload is read-only, 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 CloudSpeed Eco leverages its fast read speed to place third in the test, beating the M500DC.

The CloudSpeed Eco places just above the M500DC in latency performance.
