IOMeter – Workload Performance with QD

Moving on to our workloads, the 8TB Red quite honestly demolishes every drive previous by a large margin. It appears this drive has been finely tuned by WD. While previous drives produced a peak of 200 IOPS, the 8TB reached 450 IOPS at QD32.

It doesn't take long to figure out we have a pattern forming. In File Server, we see the same large performance increase from the 8TB, this time peaking at 500 IOPs.

Email server too was quite good, nearly touching 400 IOPs at QD32.

Web Server was a little closer for the Red Pro, but the 8TB still topped it by 110 IOPs.

Workstation shows the 8TB Red easily doubling the performance of every drive on the chart.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town in northern Ohio, technology was never around unless it was in a tractor. At the early age of nine years old, my parents brought home our very first PC and I was instantly hooked and quickly learned what it meant to format a hard drive, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95 as my parents slept. As I grew up, many things changed around me, but my love and enthusiast nature always kept my PC at my side. Eager to get deeper into technology, I started reviewing products.
