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.

Most consumer class drives are not designed for enterprise level workloads, but over the last two years we have noticed that SSDs are able to outperform the fastest SAS drives on the market in many of these tests.

Judging from the chart above, it appears that the Crucial RealSSD C300 might have a future in the enterprise market some day.
