RAID 10 offers several advantages over parity RAID sets, but this comes at the expense of capacity. The four-drive RAID 10 array provides 397 IOPS, and the eight-drive array brings that to 790 IOPS.

The RAID 10 results also reflect the same tendency to trade more performance for a bit of consistency.
