Benchmarks - Black Magic Design DST and Xbench
Within Mac OS X 10.8.5, we used a 5GB file size with Black Magic Design DST. Again these results are via the BeyondRAID single drive redundancy volume. Here you can see we touched 303 MB/s read and 234 MB/s write in our testing.
At the time of testing, I did not have in house an mSATA SSD for testing. However in the coming weeks I will be testing the SSD cache function of the Drobo 5D via the mSATA slot on the bottom of the unit.
For those that are interested in the results, I will freely post them in a TweakTown forum thread for this article.
Xbench offered us another glimpse into the Drobo 5D with the unit coming in at 312 MB/s in 4K sequential write. Larger block sizes such as 256K offered up 151 MB/s.
In random read and write, the Drobo was capable of 157 MB/s and 41.9 MB/s, respectively.
