Benchmarks – SMB Workloads

Starting off workload performance, I set up the AS6208T in a RAID 0 array and connected to it via iSCSI. As you can see, database pulled the most performance nearing 6000 IOPS at QD4, while many of the other workloads showed steady performance throughout testing around 1000 IOPS.

RAID 5 was more of the same as the 6208T excelled at QD4 in database towards 5600 IOPS.

RAID 6 showed some good scaling in database all the way to QD4 after which the NAS appeared to drop off.

Diving into RAID 10, this was the most impressive set of testing for the AS6208T as it was able to reach a peak of 4500 IOPs in database and close to or a touch over 1000 IOPS for the rest of the workloads.
