Server workloads rely heavily upon 8k performance, and we include this as a standard with each evaluation. Many of our server workloads also test 8k performance with various mixed read/write workloads.

 

The Enterprise Performance 15K v5 averages 502 IOPS at QD256, and the TurboBoost model provides 532 IOPS.

The TurboBoost model takes the edge over the standard model.

The Enterprise Performance 15K v5 displays its strength with 8k random write activity with an average of 493 IOPS at QD256, and the TurboBoost model provides 521 IOPS, but does so with reduced variability.

Both models provide an excellent performance-to-latency ratio in this test.

The Enterprise Performance TurboBoost 15K takes the lead in every category of this test.

We note very little difference in efficiency metrics during the test period, but the TurboBoost model has a slightly higher average.
