Emailserver

The Emailserver profile is a very demanding 8K test with a 50% read and 50% write distribution. This application is indicative of the performance of the solution in heavy write workloads.

 

The Seagate averages 131 IOPS, while the Red averages 151 IOPS at QD256.

Webserver

The Webserver profile is a read-only test with a wide range of file sizes. Web servers are responsible for generating content for users to view over the internet, much like the very page you are reading. The speed of the underlying storage system has a massive impact on the speed and responsiveness of the NAS, and thus the end-user experience.

 

The Seagate NAS HDD averages 102 IOPS, and the Red averages 134 IOPS at QD256.
