In order to get the highest performance out of our NAS we had to utilize an array of Corsair Performance 3 SSDs, eight of them in RAID 0 in the client system.

 

To date we've tested two 10GbE NAS products, the first was the Thecus N8900 and we're using that for a performance comparison for the QNAP TS-EC1279U-RP. The two units go back and forth in the charts for performance wins in the tasks asked to perform and with different levels of RAID.

 

The TS-EC1279U-RP performed very well across the board in our testing, but RAID 6 performance was down quite a bit compared to the Thecus N8900. The RAID 6 performance really dropped down even compared to the other RAID levels we tested. RAID 5 appears to be the best mix of redundancy and high performance, at least in these read tests.
