Benchmark Results: IOmeter, Test Patterns
This is the sort of chart that a database admin loves to see. Our workload include queue depths of 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, and 64, and performance increases each step of the way, culminating in nearly 55 000 IOPS. The average of 43 554 is still incredibly impressive, though, easily besting the Fusion-io ioDrive we reviewed a while back.
Those HDDs cost more then my entire comptuer
Read 1.4GB/s, Write 1.2GB/s
At those speeds, it's like writing to RAM, only it's your hard drive.
There were also capacities up to 1TB that cost about $4,000. There were even SLC models (which cost 4x more, approx. $15,000) which are slightly faster still.
Personally, I wouldn't mind having 1TB of "slow" RAM as my hard drive, but it's just beyond my budget.
Yup, check it out! =)
