The File Server profile represents typical file server workloads. This profile tests a wide variety of different file sizes simultaneously, with an 80% read and 20% write distribution.


The HGST takes a clear lead in this workload, with an average of 81,802 IOPS at QD256, the Toshiba PX02SMF080 averages 64,151 IOPS at QD256, well above the 45,736 IOPS mustered by the Optimus.




The HGST provides 18,961,536 I/Os (77.51%) at 2-4ms, 3,324,034 I/Os (13.58%) in the 4-6ms range, and 2,169,411 I/Os (8.86%) at 1-2ms.




The SSD800MM averages 4.91 Watts in steady state, much lower than the other SSDs in the test pool.




The HGST averages 16,709 IOPS per Watt, well above the competing SSDs.









The Emailserver profile is a very demanding 8K test with a 50% read and 50% write distribution. This application is indicative of the performance of the solution in heavy write workloads.


The HGST once again exhibits class-leading performance in this write-intensive test, with 47,124 IOPS at QD256.




The HGST provides 48.25% of I/O's at 4-6ms, 24.25% of I/O's in the 6-8ms range, 20.62% at 2-4ms, and 5.16% at 8-10ms.




The HGST averages 6.52 Watts during the measurement window.




The SSD800MM averaged an outstanding 16,709 IOPS per Watt; again well above the competing solutions.
