ATTO Disk Benchmark


The ATTO disk benchmark tests the drives read and write speeds using gradually larger size files. For these tests, the ATTO program was set to run from its smallest to largest value (.5KB to 8192KB) and the total length was set to 256MB. The test program then spits out an extrapolated performance figure in megabytes per second.



Once again the ES.3 posts some outstanding numbers with excellent single drive performance results and RAID throughput that's just spectacular.

As you can see, once the file size got beyond the 2KB mark the three results single, dual drive and quad drive did start to diverge nicely. Not only does the Constellation prefer to be in RAID configuration, it also scales much more linearly than even a VelociRaptor 1TB drive. The more ES.3 drives which are used the closer the power curves get to being four times better than the single drive results.
