Moving on to our workload testing, we start with Database. As you can see here, the 2TB solution topped the charts, while the 4TB drive had some issue from QD1 to QD8, then caught up and started the scale quite well. Peak numbers reached 148 IOPS.

File Server showed all three solutions scaling quite well. As you can see, the 4TB solution topped out at 181 IOPS, just 10 shy of the 2TB solution.

Email server is the first workload where we find the 4TB solution topping the performance of the 2TB SSHD. All drives scaled quite well, but the 4TB drive seemed to take off around QD8, reaching a peak of 127 IOPS.

Web Server was a rocky place for the 4TB SSHD. The 2TB solution seemed to push through reaching 405 IOPS, while the 4TB did come in above the standard HDD at 318 IOPS.

Workstation allowed the 4TB solution to take top honors as it reach 202 IOPS at QD32, while the 2TB drive managed just 175 IOPS.
