Email Server




The email server workload is a demanding 8K test with a 50% read and 50% write distribution. This application is indicative of the performance in heavy write workloads.


The Enterprise Performance 15K v5 leads the test by a large margin with an average of 532 IOPS at QD256. The Toshiba comes in a close second with 510 IOPS and the Savvio 15K.3 delivers 466 IOPS. The superior random write speed from the 15K v5 is very apparent in this workload.






The Enterprise Performance 15K v5 beats the other contenders during our latency v IOPS test.




The 15K v5 averages 7.7 watts during the email server workload.




The 15K v5 provides 68 IOPS-per-watt during the measurement window.
