Benchmarks – AJA System Test

 

All testing with AJA System Test is done with a 16GB file size.

In our first testing with AJA, we look at 720p RAID 0 where we find the Palm RAID coming in at 650 MB/s read, and 500 MB/s write.

Moving to RAID 1, read performance was about the same at 650 MB/s, but write performance dropped off to around 400 MB/s with some variability in there.

Moving on to 1080p within the RAID 0 array, we found the Palm RAID hovering around 700 MB/s read, and 510 MB/s write.

Back to RAID 1 with 1080p, and the Akitio held strong at 700 MB/s read, and 500 MB/s write.

4K allowed the Palm RAID to open up a bit. Here we have the drive hitting 740 MB/s read, and 540 MB/s write.

RAID 1 with 4K had the Palm RAID similar to what we saw with RAID 0.
