Samsung 850 EVO SSD Linux Benchmarks

The latest solid-state drive being added to one of our Linux test farm systems is the Samsung 850 EVO. Prior to commissioning this drive in one of the systems, I ran some benchmarks against a few other solid-state drives while testing with the EXT4 file-system on Ubuntu Linux.

OCZ ARC 100 Linux SSD Benchmarks

For those looking for a very economically priced SSD that's still reliable and from a well known vendor, the OCZ ARC 100 series might be the most tempting drive line-up yet. With the OCZ ARC 100 series, a 256GB SSD costs only $90 USD or a 480GB SSD for $197. Though in this article the OCZ ARC 100 120GB SSD is being tested and it retails for less than $70 USD.

Transcend SSD370 256GB

It's been ten years since last testing any Transcend products, back in the days of DDR2 memory and 1GB flash drives. However, that changed when recently picking up a Transcend SSD370 256GB solid-state drive.

OCZ Vector 150 SSD On Linux

The latest solid-state drive being tested at Phoronix is the 120GB OCZ Vector 150. This solid-state drive is quite affordable but has been reviewed favorably by Windows users, so we figured we'd see how well it works when adding it to one of the constantly-running Linux benchmark systems.

Intel 120GB 530 Series SSD Linux Performance

In my recent articles doing RAID 0/1/5/6/10 benchmarking on Btrfs/EXT4/XFS/F2FS, I've been using four 120GB Intel 530 Series SSDs. I went with these four solid-state drives for getting a deal on them and having been pleased with numerous Intel SSDs I've used in the past and still running in a few Linux test systems, but how does the Intel 530 Series SSD on Linux compare to other modern solid-state drives? If you've been eyeing the SSDSC2BW12 SSDs, here's some fresh single-drive SSD benchmarks using Btrfs compared to drives from OCZ, Corsair, and Samsung.

Btrfs/EXT4/XFS/F2FS RAID 0/1/5/6/10 Linux Benchmarks On Four SSDs

Following the recent Btrfs RAID: Native vs. Mdadm comparison, the dual-HDD Btrfs RAID benchmarks, and four-SSD RAID 0/1/5/6/10 Btrfs benchmarks are RAID Linux benchmarks on these four Intel SATA 3.0 solid state drives using other file-systems -- including EXT4, XFS, and Btrfs with Linux 3.18.

Btrfs RAID: Built-In/Native RAID vs. Mdadm

Last month on Phoronix I posted some dual-HDD Btrfs RAID benchmarks and that was followed by Btrfs RAID 0/1/5/6/10 testing on four Intel solid-state drives. In still testing the four Intel Series 530 SSDs in a RAID array, the new benchmarks today are a comparison of the performance when using Btrfs' built-in RAID capabilities versus setting up a Linux 3.18 software RAID with Btrfs on the same hardware/software using mdadm.

Btrfs On 4 x Intel SSDs In RAID 0/1/5/6/10

Earlier this month I published Btrfs RAID benchmarks on two HDDs but as some more interesting results are now Btrfs RAID file-system benchmarks when testing the next-generation Linux file-system across four Intel Series 530 solid-state drives. All RAID levels supported by the Btrfs file-system were benchmarked atop Ubuntu 14.10 with the Linux 3.18-rc1 kernel: RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10 levels along with testing a Btrfs single SSD setup and a Btrfs file-system linearly spanning all four drives.
