Benchmarks – Mixed Workloads


SSDs stretch their legs with mixed workloads. In Database and the RS217, we see a peak of 3500 IOPS with SSDs in RAID 0 and 2000 IOPS RAID 1. With HDDs, we reach 350 IOPS RAID 0 and 200 IOPS RAID 1.


File Server showed better results with RAID 1 SSDs at 2600 IOPs while the HDDs peaked at 250 IOPs RAID 0.


Again, we touched nearly 2800 IOPs with RAID 0 SSDs and 2300 IOPS RAID 1. HDDs closer to 400-450 IOPS in RAID 0 and 200 IOPS RAID 1.


Web Server had both RAID 0 and 1 reaching near 2500 IOPS with our SSDs while the IronWolf 10TB drives chugged away at 250 IOPS in RAID 0 and 300 IOPS in RAID 1.


Last, we have workstation typically our highest performing workload. As you can see, the SSD reached 4000 IOPS in RAID 0 and 3700 IOPS in RAID 1. The HDDs, however, are still at 350 IOPS in RAID 0 and 300IOPS in RAID 1.
