Micron 5100 MAX & ECO Enterprise SSD Review (960GB/1920GB)


Our last set of profiles include both File Server and Web Server workloads. As mentioned before the last hour of preconditioning, the average IOPS, and average latency for each QD is graphed below.

The File Server profile is based on an 80% read/20% write mix. It’s made up of block sizes from 512 to 64K, each making up a different percentage of the access pattern. The pattern is: 512 bytes=10%, 1k=5%, 2k=5%, 4k=60%, 8k=2%, 16k=4%, 32k=4%, 64k=10%.

Again, in this profile test the Micron 5100 series underperforms against the competition.

The Web Server profile is similar to the File Server profile, but has some additional 128K and 512K accesses thrown in for good measure. Additionally, the profile is 100% reads.

Finally, during the web server profile we see that the 5100 Series is still beat by the competition overall.
