IOMeter - Sequential Performance with QD

Sequential testing began with read performance where the Archive HDD pulled decent numbers around 118 MB/s throughout testing.

Sequential write showed rather impressive performance for this solution as results started and maintained a 200 MB/s average throughout.

Read latency was quite a bit higher than other solution we have tested with a peak of 414 Ms at QD32.

Sequential write latency again went back to mirroring the performance of standard hard drives. Here we have a low of .65ms at QD1 to a peak at QD32 of 20 Ms.
