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 CloudSpeed 1000E averages 22,945 IOPS at QD256.




The CloudSpeed 1000E provides 36.4% of I/O at 10-20ms, 24% at 6-8ms, 17.6% at 8-10ms, and 12.8% in the 4-6ms range.




The 1000E averages 3.76 Watts during the precondition run.




The 1000E nudges past the SM843 with 6,101 IOPS per Watt.









The Webserver profile is a read-only test with a wide range of file sizes. Web servers are responsible for generating content for users to view over the internet, much like the very page you are reading. The speed of the underlying storage system has a massive impact on the speed and responsiveness of the server that is hosting the website, and thus the end-user experience.


The 1000E averages 6,746 IOPS at QD256. The DC S3500 manages to beat the 1000E slightly, while the SM843 continues to flaunt its impressive skills in read-centric workloads.




The 1000E provides 71.9% of I/O at 10-20ms, 22.4% at 8-10ms, and 5.5% at 6-8ms.




The 1000E averages 3.31 Watts during the measurement window.




The 1000E averages 6,746 IOPS per Watt.
