Page 5[Benchmarks - Latency and Mixed Workloads]






Random read latency was the best with the SSDs as expected, while the HDD arrays had RAID 10 as the quickest.




Random write had the RAID 0 array as the quickest.




Sequential read latency had the RAID 0 HDD array only 3ms behind the RAID 0 SSD array.




Sequential write had the RAID 5 SSD array as the quickest with the RAID 0 HDD taking honors on the other side.



Mixed Workloads




Here we have our first mixed workload, OLTP/Database. As you can see, the RAID 0 array excelled here at 475 IOPS.




File Server came in at 504 IOPS at QD32.




Email server furthered the performance at 434 IOPS at QD32.




Web Server had all RAID arrays matched in performance.




Once again, RAID 0 array did the best with Workstation
