VMWare Load Time Performance
VMWare is a powerful application which allows users the ability to run a virtualized Operating System from inside their main OS. This program is not only processor and RAM intensive but puts significant load on the storage subsystem with deep, heavy read/write IO requests to the drive. To help give you a general idea on the performance improvements from running a RAM Drive we have timed the time it takes to load XP SP3 from inside VMWare.
Once again, this drive did not met our high expectations but easily exceeded them. Considering how reasonably priced this 1TB model is we foresee this being one of the few TLC’s series to reach cult status amongst knowledgeable buyers.
