As you may have noted in the last few charts, there is certainly a difference between drives tuned for a set of workloads and one that is not. That holds true in Email Server as well with the Barracuda Pro starting off at 200 IOPS and ending at 320 IOPS at QD32.

Web Server let the Barracuda Pro stretch its legs a little starting a touch under 200 IOPS at QD1 and topping out near 600 IOPS at QD32.

More of the same for Workstation, as the Barracuda Pro starts at 9ms and ends near 90ms at QD32.
