This test consists of database and On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) workloads. OLTP is the processing of transactions such as credit cards, and high frequency trading in the financial sector. Databases are the bread and butter of many enterprise deployments. These demanding 8k random workloads with a 66 percent read and 33 percent write distribution bring even the best solutions down to earth.
The WD Red Pro provides 173 IOPS at QD256, the WD SE averages 169 IOPS, the WD Red averages 144 IOPS, and the Seagate NAS HDD provides 99 IOPS. In this challenging mixed workload, the WD Red Pro actually outpaces its enterprise sibling, the WD SE.
The WD Red Pro requires an average of 10.89 watts during the workload.
The WD Red Pro provides 14 IOPS-per-watt.
The file server profile consists of typical file server workloads. This profile tests a wide variety of different file sizes simultaneously, with an 80% read and 20% write distribution.
The WD Red pro offers 159 IOPS at QD256, and is surprisingly beaten by the original WD Red and the WD SE. The WD SE provides a chart-topping 207 IOPS, the WD Red offers 182 IOPS, and the Seagate NAS HDD provides 118 IOPS.
The WD SE distances itself from the pack with excellent low latency performance.
The WD Red Pro averages 10.83 watts during the fileserver workload.
The WD Red Pro offers 13 IOPS-per-watt during the measurement window.
