Starting off our SMB workloads, the DS716+ at QD1 hovered around 110 IOPS but did ramp up to 200 IOPS at QD8. Continuing, we find a slight dip at QD16, which recovers nicely at QD32 near 250 IOPs.

File Server started the DS716 off just under 100 IOPS but scaled quite well all the way up to QD16 and 250 IOPS.

Looking the email server, we find similar performance with QD1 just a touch over 100 IOPS and peaking at 200 IOPS at QD8.

Web Server scaled quite well up to QD16 where we find our peak performance a little under 300 IOPs.

Moving on to Web, we find all appliances running an interesting and parallel pattern on the chart. Peak performance was around 300 IOPS from QD8 all the way past QD128.

Workstation has the 716+ starting at 150 IOPS QD1 and moving up to a peak of 275 IOPS at QD16.
