The Photo Album and Content Creation tests are very difficult for NAS servers since they involve many small files. If you have ever wondered why we pay so much attention to the 4K write speeds in our HDD tests the creation of content, like audio files use many of these small writes.

 

Here we see Thecus' 4GB of RAM really coming into play and doing quite a number on the Proware unit in several tests.

 

Most interestingly, when we played around with the file systems we didn't see much difference between EXT3 and XFS.
