As the industry’s leading provider of high-performance storage & network connectivity products, ATTO has created a widely-accepted Disk Benchmark freeware software to help measure storage system performance. As one of the top tools utilized in the industry, Disk Benchmark identifies performance in hard drives, solid state drives, RAID arrays as well as the host connection to attached storage. Top drive manufacturers, like Hitachi, build and test every drive using the ATTO Disk Benchmark.
The ATTO Disk Benchmark performance measurement tool is compatible with Microsoft Windows. Use ATTO Disk Benchmark to test any manufacturers RAID controllers, storage controllers, host bus adapters (HBAs), hard drives and SSD drives and notice that ATTO products will consistently provide the highest level of performance to your storage.
We like ATTO because it tests so many different size transfers but on the flipside of that coin, it uses 0Fill totally compressible data to test with. ATTO is the defacto standard for a lot of companies to test advertised speed of their storage products and the 0Fill testing method gives the highest possible speed. Unfortunately, that 0Fill nature isn’t very representative of real life speeds but its a standard so we test with it.
Starting at a brutal .5kb and we got 47.271MB/s write and 50.668MB/s read and those speeds gradually increase to the 8192kb test where we got 2391.999MB/s or 2.392GB/s write and 2.975GB/s read.
