The SR-71mach4 SpeedServer turned in a respectable top score on Geekbench 2.4 of 36,804. That was good enough to land it in third place on CRN's all-time list and bump Hewlett-Packard's ProLiant DL380p down to fourth. Even more impressive, this score more than tripled a Geekbench score of 11,762 turned in by the SR-71 system we tested in 2011.
But Geekbench tells only part of the story. While Primate Labs' benchmarking tool provides a useful measure of a system's holistic performance, it's also important--particularly for servers--to measure the system's processing and storage subsystems. That's where IOmeter comes in. And if judged on IOmeter results alone, the SR-71mach4 would be in a league of its own. Click next for details.
