Benchmarks - Single Client Throughput




HD Video Play - 720p HD stream from Windows Media Player* 256kB reads

2HD Video Play - 2x playback

4HD Video Play - 4x playback

HD Video Record - 720p HD stream, 256kB writes

File Copy From NAS - 4GB file copy, 64kB reads

File Copy To NAS - 64kB writes




Single client testing showed the mind blowing performance of the 5Big Thunderbolt. Here we have video playback results touching 601 MB/s in RAID 0, with file copy to and from the DAS reaching 412 MB/s and 523 MB/s, respectively.



Benchmarks - Random and Sequential Workloads




Our 4K Random read/write workload consists of sixteen threads all at QD16, results our measured in IOPS (Input Output Operations per Second).


Above, we can see the 5Big Thunderbolt excel in random write IOPS in RAID 0 with a result of 1374 IOPS. Furthermore, the 5Big does quite well with random read in both RAID 0 and RAID 1.




Our sequential read/write workload is centered on 1MB transfer sizes again with sixteen threads and a queue depth of 16.


Here we see more of the great performance of the 5Big Thunderbolt, especially in RAID 0 sequential read and write.
