The story behind ATTO Disk Benchmark for macOS
ATTO Disk Benchmark™ is
an industry-standard benchmark for disk performance used throughout the computing
landscape for nearly 25 years. HDD, SSD
and NVMe manufacturers use it to test their drives, system builders use it to
check the performance of storage architectures, end users test their systems
and review sites include it as a staple among their suite of benchmarking
ATTO Disk Benchmark
first appeared in 1996 as part of the ATTO ExpressRAID™ Software Suite. Today, ATTO Disk Benchmark for Windows® is
one of the most popular benchmark tools, with downloads from ATTO.com averaging
3,000 a month.
For some time, our
customers and partners have been asking ATTO to extend our expertise in storage
benchmarking and Apple® computing platforms to the current macOS®. In October we fulfilled those requests by
releasing ATTO Disk Benchmark for macOS as a free download. Now Mac users can once again measure the
performance of their disk systems to determine and optimize their storage
of ATTO Technology, Tim Klein, is excited to offer this to the Mac community.
“One of the really cool features of this benchmark is that it can be used to
benchmark any storage system that’s
loaded in the operating system as a disk device,” said Klein. “This allows for testing of both physical and
virtual devices (think VMware®), and doesn't care where those devices are
located, be it in your desktop, in the server or up in the cloud.”
Although in development
before Apple announced they will be shipping a new generation Mac Pro®, the
timing works perfectly because the power and features of the new Mac Pro will
benefit from the data Disk Benchmark generates.
It is compatible with the recently released macOS Catalina (version
10.15), plus Mojave and High Sierra (10.14 and 10.13).
