Principled Technologies Compares Performance of Value SAS and Data Center

NVMe SSDs from Toshiba Memory vs. SATA SSDs in Dell EMC PowerEdge
R840, R740xd, and MX Servers

Principled Technologies found that Dell EMC PowerEdge R840, R740xd, and MX servers with
value SAS and data center NVMe SSDs from Toshiba Memory outperformed the same servers
configured with enterprise SATA SSDs on transactional and analytical database workloads. In
addition, value SAS and data center NVMe SSDs running a database analytics workload offered up
to 132% more operations per second for every dollar compared to enterprise SATA SSDs.

Durham, NC, April 30, 2019 --(PR.com)-- SATA SSDs, once embraced by enterprises as an affordable
flash storage option, have not increased their transfer speeds in over ten years. (Footnote 1) Now Toshiba
Memory has introduced the RM5 Series of value SAS SSDs and the CD5 Series of data center NVMe
SSDs, both of which claim faster transfer speeds than SATA SSDs. Principled Technologies tested value
SAS SSDs, data center NVMe SSDs, and SATA SSDs across three different workloads and Dell EMC
PowerEdge server platforms to gauge whether the drives from Toshiba Memory could boost database
workload performance and provide performance-per-dollar cost savings versus the SATA SSDs.

and CD5 Series data center NVMe SSDs vs. enterprise SATA SSDs

According to the report, “The configuration with value SAS drives from Toshiba Memory provided 106
percent more operations per second (OPS) than the configuration with SATA drives. Data center NVMe
drives improved performance even further, producing 137 percent more OPS than the SATAbased
configuration. Value SAS and data center NVMe SSDs also offered up to 57 percent better response
times and provided up to 132 percent better database performance per dollar than the enterprise SATA
SSDs we tested.”

SAS SSDs and CD5 Series data center NVMe SSDs vs. enterprise SATA SSDs.

According to the report, “The value SAS drive configuration boosted transactions per second (TPS) by up
to 71 percent over the configuration with enterprise SATA drives. Data center NVMe drives pushed
performance even further, delivering up to 115 percent more TPS than the SATAbased configuration.
We also found that value SAS and data center NVMe drives delivered, respectively, up to 73 percent and
109 percent better transactional database performance per dollar than enterprise SATA drives.”

Series value SAS SSDs vs. enterprise SATA SSDs

According to the report, “The configuration with value SAS SSDs processed 40 percent more orders per
minute, responded in roughly half the time, and delivered 45 percent more transactional database
performance per dollar than the enterprise SATA SSDs we tested.”
