Mixed workloads can be tough for some drives, and that is true of the N300. In Database, we see the N300 start strong, but it hit a wall at around 150 IOPS, where competing solutions keep going.

File Server showed much of the same - a 170-180 IOPS wall for the N300.

Email Server showed a slight burst at QD1 to 170 IOPS then slowing to 150 IOPS through the rest of the scale.

Web Server seems to be the strongest workload for many drives, and that too is the case with the N300. As you can see, it scaled perfectly from QD1 at 170 IOPS to QD32 at 490 IOPS.
