Many users complain that I/O Meter is too complicated of a benchmark to replicate results so my quest to find an alternative was started. Passmark has added several multi-user tests that measure a hard drives ability to operate in a multi-user environment.

The tests use different settings to mimic basic multi-user operations as they would play out on your server. Variances is read / write percentage as well as random / sequential reads are common in certain applications, Web Servers read nearly 100% of the time while Database Servers write a small amount of data.

The Workstation test is the only single user environment and will be similar to how you use your system at home.

The SandForce SF-1200 wasn't designed for server duties, but we found that it is one of the fastest drives we have ever tested in these tests. To date each time we have ran a RAID array the results for these tests went up quite rapidly and kept going with the addition of more drives, but with the S599 the progression wasn't as high. We can't wait to get in a pair of SF-1500 drives that are designed for these tasks to see how they do.
