ATTO Disk Benchmark

ATTO is another "quick and dirty" type of disk benchmark that measures transfer speeds across a specific volume length. It measures raw transfer rates for both reads and writes and graphs them out in an easily interpreted chart. We chose .5kb through 8192kb transfer sizes and a queue depth of 6 over a total max volume length of 256MB. ATTO's workloads are sequential in nature and measure raw bandwidth, rather than I/O response time, access latency, etc. This test was performed on blank, formatted drives with default NTFS partitions in Windows 7 x64.

When running in a single drive configuration, the Intel SSD DC S3500 put up numbers competitive with all of the other drive, but it didn't break away in either the read or write tests.  When operating in a RAID 0 configuration, though, the Intel SSD DC S3500 drives performed very well in the read tests with small transfer sizes, but ultimately ended up trailing the DC S3700 and SSD 520 RAID setups.
