This test emulates Database and On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) workloads. OLTP is in essence the processing of transactions such as credit cards and high frequency trading in the financial sector. Enterprise SSDs are uniquely well suited for the financial sector with their low latency and high random workload performance. Databases are the bread and butter of many enterprise deployments. These are demanding 8K random workloads with a 66% read and 33% write distribution that can bring even the highest performing solutions down to earth.


The HGST SSD800MM averages 59,259 IOPS during the measurement window, and exhibits a very tight range of performance in comparison to the Toshiba PX02SMF080.




The HGST provides 8,076,645 I/Os (45.6%) at 2-4ms, and 7,876,877 I/Os (44.47%) at 4-6ms.
