Benchmarks - Random and Sequential Workloads


Our 4k Random read/write workload consists of sixteen threads, all at QD8; results are measured in IOPS (Input Output Operations per Second).


Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 1MB transfer sizes, again using sixteen threads and a Queue Depth of 8.




In our first 4k random test with RAID 0, we find the EX2 competing quite well with previously tested solutions.




Moving to RAID 1, we find the EX2 coming in at 122 IOPS read and 512 IOPS write.




RAID 0 sequentials for the EX2 came in at 49 MB/s read and 51 MB/s write.




RAID 1 performance was close to what we found with RAID 0. Here we have 52 MB/s read and 40 MB/s write.
