Intel Modular Server – File Copy Performance From/To The Same Virtual Disk

As we are working our way through the implementation of the Intel Modular Server based Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 cluster, there are little things we have caught our eye here and there.

This is one of them:


The above is the tail end of of a content copy of various sized database files from a source folder into a subfolder to preserve the originals and keep them handy as a just-in-case.

The average copy speed was 130MB/Second as the copy process peaked at about 160MB/Second sustained for a good chunk of the copy process for a 3.2GB database file.

The Virtual Disk being used is sitting on four 146GB Seagate Savvio 15K.6 SAS drives. The RAID configuration for the Virtual Disk is RAID 10 across the four.
