AS-SSD Compression Test

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 incompressible 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.

The T1 didn't flinch when presented with compressible data -- it hovered at just under 400MB/s for writes and close to 450MB/s for writes. And once again, we didn't see any burps in performance like we did with both flash drives.
