The small data size write performance issue really shows itself when writing database information to the NAS. We don't expect many businesses to use the DL4100 for a database server other than using it for QuickBooks. The performance doesn't scale well as the queue depth increases either. The latency does increase though.

The workstation workload shows nearly identical performance to the database workload test. There isn't a real performance increase as the workload increases, but the latency increases. This reveals a bottleneck somewhere in the system - most likely a DRAM increase would improve performance.
