At higher queue depths, the two PBlaze5 916 SSDs dominate the other products. This series of charts do a good job of showing how Memblaze has been able to increase performance since the Micron 9100 generation.

OLTP Workload

The OLTP test shows similar results to the database test. The PBlaze5 SSDs show excellent performance against a previous generation and what some would call the industry standard.

The two PBlaze5 NVMe SSDs are so high performance that we struggle to find a workload that makes them stumble. Like the other tests, the two drives manage to blast past the two comparison SSDs in the charts.

Archive Workload

Our most strenuous workload comes from the Dell Performance Lab in the form of the Archive workload. This workload uses a mix of reads and writes different block sizes. It's very difficult for very good SSDs to deliver consistent performance under the Archive workload but the PBlaze5 managers to keep the IO tight while also maintaining high performance at extreme queue depths.
