As mentioned in the previous Asustor review, I have begun using SSDs to test NAS appliances. This allows me to see the full capability of the appliance rather than the performance of the hard drives. The DS216play in RAID 0 was able to reach 100 MB/s in file copy to NAS and peaked out in video playback at 108 MB/s.
Moving over to RAID 1, this solution peaked out at 96 MB/s in video playback while file copy reached 86 to the NAS and 74 MB/s from the NAS.
Benchmarks – Sequential Workloads
Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes.
Sequential read results in RAID 0 topped out at 89 MB/s.
Sequential write started out at 37 MB/s then ramped up to a peak of 56 MB/s.
If we look at RAID 1, sequential results touched the same 89 MB/s read.
While write performance within RAID 1 did fall slightly, the DS216 did bring in a peak of 52 MB/s.
