Enterprise Read Intensive SATA SSD Roundup Review

Recommended Posts

The market for SATA enterprise SSDs is thriving, in good part thanks to software defined storage and HCI deployments that can effectively manage SATA drives and still provide the storage services organizations expect. VMware vSAN for instance takes a cache-based approach where the majority of the SSDs in a deployment will be SATA drives. Thanks to data reduction technologies (compression, dedupe) a 1.92TB SATA SSD (or 1.6TB if you're Intel) can offer an effective capacity of 2-5 times that amount while maintaining a lower-cost profile. The explosion of these more flexible storage systems certainly bodes well for the entire SATA SSD category.

It would be nice to see a list of the drive firmware versions involved in your testing, so that it could be determined if drives with weaker showings (eg: the Intel S3520) were running on early firmware releases that may have seen significant optimization since the review tests.  The Micron 5100 Eco must have been tested on an early firmware, as this product was very new at the time.

That's probably something that would be easy enough to include in future reviews.
