The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

If benchmarks are a bit of a flop, the safe bet is to turn to real-world tests. We transferred a 2GB directory of files within each drive and also from one drive to another. Usually, we run a particular test a number of times until we are confident the results are both representative and repeatable and then we use the median figure. The OCZ blew that approach out of the water as the numbers were horribly inconsistent, so we have given the three median figures for each file transfer test.
