8k Random Read/Write




8k random read and write speed is a metric that is not tested for consumer use, but this is an important aspect of performance for enterprise environments. With several different workloads relying heavily upon 8k performance, we include this as a standard with each evaluation. Many of our Server Emulations below will also test 8k performance with various mixed read/write workloads.


The Seagate Savvio 15K.3 averages 535 IOPS at QD256, and the SSHD delivers an average of 596 IOPS.




The average 8k random write speed of the Savvio 15K.3 is 430 IOPS at QD256




The 15K.3 again blows past the lower-speed competition in our mixed workload testing, while the Turbo SSHD reigns supreme in mixed workloads.




The Savvio 15K.3 again manages to best the competition in power consumption with an average of 7.49 watts.






The Enterprise Turbo SSHD takes the lead in efficiency with write activity but trails slightly with read activity.
