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 server tests show that the SiliconEdge Blue is not really a competitor to the SF 1500 in the racks, but the Blue is able to compete with some of the Indilinx Barefoot drives in some situations. All of the SSDs shown in the chart are able to run circles around platter drives, even the very fast Seagate 15K.7.
