Web-Server, File-Server Patterns
The drives are tested under loads typical of servers. The names of the patterns are self-explanatory. The results are presented as performance ratings which are calculated as the average speed of the drive at every load.
If there are only read requests to process, you may want to consider the RevoDrive in the first place. It is just excellent under such a load. The Corsair Force-based RAID and the Crucial are fast, too, but you should not connect the latter to the Marvell controller which performs awfully at high queue depths.
The low-capacity models based on the SandForce controller and the OCZ Colossus are the worst performers in this test.
The addition of a small share of write operations into the test pattern doesn’t change the standings.
