Single Client Throughput for the DS716+ was quite impressive. In our chart above this appliance is battling it out with the 6202T from Asustor in nearly every test.

Changing our array to RAID 1, the DS716+ took a sizable and clear lead in almost every test.

With RAID 1, the DS716+ started out at 25MB/s QD1 and ramped up to 117 MB/s by the time we hit QD8. Peak performance reached was around QD16 at 118 MB/s.

Write performance for the DS716+ was spot on the read performance though we started at a much higher 66 MB/s at QD1, but still peaked at the same 118 MB/s.
