In JBOD we see the QNAP TS-859U-RP pounding the Thecus unit and nearly doubling the transfer speed. Things change once we start to get into the eight drive tests, but the QNAP unit still delivers performance that exceeds most NAS units that we have tested to date.
Here we see the TS-859U-RP streaming HD video files at up to 60MB/s. At this speed you would be able to stream several videos at the same time throughout the office and not see a slowdown in performance until the 60MB/s limit was reached.
