Myce, a popular online community of technology professionals with over 3.5
million unique monthly visitors and over 450,000 members, is known for its
insightful, in-depth reviews of industry leading products. Recently, Myce
reviewed Western Digital’s Blue 3D one terabyte SATA SSD featuring a state
of the art 64-layer 3D bit cost scalable (BiCS), triple level cell (TLC)
NAND flash technology. The OakGate test platform was used exclusively to
perform fresh out of the box (FOB) tests, as well as steady state tests.
Myce has been a valued partner and for the last several years, we are
delighted that they have placed their trust in the OakGate test platform to
conduct thorough reviews of industry leading SSDs. The OakGate test platform
has become the storage industry's most advanced and complete testing
solution and been adopted by major customers worldwide as the “Gold
Standard” for solid state storage testing.
The comprehensive review included FOB tests that provide a highly consistent
basis for comparing solutions. The sequence of tests began with a purge of
the drive and executed all of the essential IO performance characteristics.
Sequential read and write tests, as well as random read and write tests,
were performed. Similarly, steady state testing was performed using the
OakGate test platform. This included a battery of tests starting with Secure
Erase commands to bring the drive to a FOB state, followed by 128K
sequential writes until the drive reached twice its user capacity. For each
test, Myce used OakGate test platform’s extensive graphing capabilities to
plot bandwidth, I/Os per second (IOPS), latency and power consumption.
