Single Client Performance Wrap-up
The NAS ships preconfigured in RAID 5, and it should stay there. RAID 5 uses fewer system resources than RAID 6, and at the same time it still keeps your data in a redundant environment. The system supports RAID 0, 1, 5, and JBOD.
The Seagate Business Storage Windows Server does very well when reading data from the system, but the write performance is lower than many of the other systems on the chart. This also lowers the performance in mixed workload environments.
In some instances the read performance is very high though. On the final chart, we see the Directory Copy from NAS test where the Seagate unit outperforms everything else.
