Benchmarks - IOMeter Mixed Workloads





Starting with the 80/20 Database workload, we see solid gains from the 12TB model mainly at the higher queue depths 8 through 32. Peak performance reached 400 IOPs, 100 over the 10TB. The RAID array, as you can see, reached around 550 IOPs.




File Server came close to 500 IOPs for the 12TB and the RAID array close to 600 IOPs.




Email Server started a touch above 200 IOPs at QD1 and pushed through 350 IOPs at QD32. The two-drive array started near 275 IOPs at QD1 and pushed 475 IOPs at QD32.




Web Server showed steady improvement for the 12Tb model with a 100 IOPs advantage at QD32. The RAID array touches over 725 IOPs at QD32.





With Workstation, we see similar performance just over 200 IOPs at QD1, 275 IOPS at QD2 and 310 IOPs at QD4. QD8 reached 375 IOPs and QD16 is the peak of the drive at 400 IOPs. The RAID array pushed through 525 IOPs at QD8, its peak.
