Random and Sequential Workloads with HDDs
All testing below was done with eight WD Red 2TB drives.
Random read was rather impressive across all arrays. As you can see at QD32, we were able to reach 600 IOPS across the board.
Random write was quite good with RAID 0, while RAID 10 came in at 1160 IOPS at QD32.
RAID 0 and RAID 5 paved the way with sequential, reaching 719 MB/s and 722 MB/s, respectively.
RAID 0 again was the quickest array with sequential write, coming in at 702 MB/s.
Random and Sequential Workloads with SSDs
All testing below was done on eight SanDisk Extreme Pro 256GB SSDs.
Above, we have our very first test run with SSDs. As you can see, we maxed out Thunderbolt 2 at 63,284 random read IOPS.
Random write IOPS came in at 69,511 at QD16.
Sequential read for the Areca came in at 1448.4 MB/s at QD32.
Sequential write came in at 1386.7 MB/s at QD32 with our RAID 0 array.
