It is increasingly more important to be able to move from one PC to another or carry around large amounts of information. Therefore we decided to take a closer look at three solutions that offer great portability, sufficient storage capacity and small and thin dimensions. Our article is devoted to the products from two well-known storage solution makers – Western Digital and Transcend.
File-Server & Web-Server Pattern
These patterns simulate the load typical of the disk subsystem of File and Web servers. The drive’s performance rating is calculated in this test by averaging its speed at request queue depths of 1, 4, 16 and 64.
When working in file-server mode, the two HD-227 models share top place with similar results. The WD Passport is the worst one here.
The four drives have similar performance ratings, the Transcend being just a little better than the others. Looking up in the table, you can see that it owes its high rating to its high speed at long request queue depths.
