Small file writes are an area where NAS appliances and servers struggle to keep up with direct attached storage systems. Here we see that the Photo Album and Content Creations tests slow the system considerably, but we do still see a large performance increase over the previous generation TS-419P.
The Office Productivity Test was not run on the TS-419P since it was not available at the time of testing. In this area, one of the most often used in a small business environment, the QNAP TS-459 TurboNAS is able to put up solid performance in all RAID array types.
