Micron 5100 Series SSDs: AS-SSD Compression Testing

Next up we ran the Compression Benchmark built-into AS SSD, an SSD specific benchmark being developed by Alex Intelligent Software. This test is interesting because it uses a mix of compressible and non-compressible data and outputs both Read and Write throughput of the drive. We only graphed a small fraction of the data (1% compressible, 50% compressible, and 100% compressible), but the trend is representative of the benchmark’s complete results.

Quick and to the point, compression does not appear to impact the 5100 series drive’s performance. In all cases, these drives lead or nearly lead the test fleet.
