Switching benchmarks to AJA, we start our testing with RAID 0 and the 720p workload. As you can see above, the R2+ did quite well with 524MB/s read and 299 MB/s write. The RAID 1 array came in at 172 MB/s read and 165 MB/s write.

Moving to the 1080p workload, the R2+ came in at 582 MB/s read and 304 MB/s write.

 

Looking at the RAID 1 array, we see similar numbers to our 720p testing at 176 MB/s read and 156 MB/s write.

Finally, we switch to 4K testing where the RAID 0 excelled reaching 605 MB/s read and 290 MB/s write.

 

On the other hand, the RAID 1 did get a little beat up touching 173 MB/s read and 153 MB/s write.
