The AIC MiniBOD is more of a holder and transporter than it is a performance piece. The performance measured in the benchmarks today comes from the LSI adapter and the drives, the MiniBOD doesn't add to performance, but if the enclosure is not working correctly it could decrease performance.

Here we see that everything with the MiniBOD is working as it should be and not decreasing the expected performance of the array. The RAID 0 and RAID 5 read numbers look very good.

Write Tests

The write performance of the system is also very fast. Here we see RAID 0 hitting nearly 750MB/s.
