Benchmarks - 6 HDD / RAID 6

 

RAID 6: Extend RAID 5 by adding an additional parity block; thus it uses block-level striping with two parity blocks distributed across all member disks.

Single Client Performance Wrap-up

 

Since the TS-669L and TS-669 Pro have the same processor and DRAM amount, we have to assume the massive jump in performance between these two models is due to the new QTS 4.0.2 firmware.

 

The new firmware when paired with the TS-669 Pro doubles performance in some tests when compared to the TS-669L with the older 3-Series firmware.

 

Looking beyond just QNAP's products, the TS-669 Pro is now as fast and faster in many tests as other manufacture's NAS products.
