IOMeter – 4K Random Performance with QD

Starting our Iometer testing with 4K, I found the 10TB solution a touch quicker than the 8TB from WD. Closer inspection shows a near 25% increase in performance over the 8TB Archive at QD32.

Write performance touched near 900 IOPS for a second, then things calmed down and averaged around 600 IOPS.

The latency results show solid performance as the Enterprise Capacity scales quite well from under 10ms at QD1 to 50ms at QD32.

I don't think this new 10TB design leverages any SMR technology. As you can see in comparison to the Archive, the 10TB drive has much better latency at high QD.
