Benchmarks – SMB Workloads RAID 0

For the SMB workloads, I have removed all the previously tested NAS appliances. This is because I didn't want appliances tested with hard drives mixed in with SMB workloads because there's too much of a difference in the results. As you can see here with the database workload on RAID 0, the Asustor unit was able to hit near 4600 IOP's.

Moving over to file server, we find the AS6202T steadily increase its performance through the queue depth scale. At QD1, we are just under 2000 IOPS while moving up we come to a peak of 5000 at QD128.

Looking the email server, we find similar performance with QD1 just under 2000 while moving up to a peak of 4900 IOPS at QD8.

Web Server picked up slightly as peak results came in at 5200 IOPS.

In our workstation workload, we found the Asustor to reach 5500 IOPS coming at QD8 through QD128.

Results for this start just south of 1500 and move up gradually to a peak of 3300 at QD8.

This NAS appliance got beat up pretty good with file server as results were barely able to reach over 1000.

Email server bounced back as QD1 started at 1300 and gradually moved up until it reached a peak of 2400 IOPS at QD4.

Moving on to Web server, we start with a low of 400 IOPs at QD1 and moving towards QD8 we peak at just over 700 IOPS.

Workstation again showed promise as the AS6202T started at a respectable 1400 IOPS reaching a peak of 2300 IOPS at QD16.
