Performance in Intel IOMeter FileServer and WebServer Patterns
The table with highlighted good and bas results comes first:
Of course, the indisputable leader here is the Hitachi solution. In WebServer pattern is it simply beyond any competition (remember how fast it was in RandomRead mode). However, in FileServer pattern both WD drives compete with the one from Hitachi.
And this seems to be a really cut-throat competition, though only under high workloads.
Hitachi drive also appears very high up in the rating list. Note that ATA and SATA HDDs from Western Digital are equally fast here, while the two drives from Maxtor are no longer that unanimous: the SATA HDD turned out somewhat slower.
When we look at the WebServer performance graph, the advantage of Hitachi drive over competitors appears really striking.
And of course, this can’t help telling on the rating.
