Today we will talk about a new four-channel ATA/133 RAID controller from Promise, which proved a very reliable, well-done product. Are you sure you want to go for the brand new SATA stuff? Maybe it is worth paying attention to some excellent ATA/133 solutions which have already stood the test of time and still retained their actuality?
Now let’s check how our tested arrays will behave in WebServer pattern, which has absolutely no writes (the server is supposed to have no dynamic content and simply delivers the requested files).
The absence of writes among the processed requests exerts great influence on the overall situation. As a result, RAID 01 array takes the leading position in the race, and RAID 1 array catches up with RAID 0 of three drives.
Summing up the results of DataBase and WebServer pattern we can conclude that in case of random reads Promise TX4000 controller splits the requests evenly between the HDDs of the mirrored pair.
