Benchmarks - 2 Drive RAID 0

The surprises just keep coming from this little NAS. With such impressive performance coming from the redundant test there wasn't much room for RAID 0 to improve upon. The 1.6GHz processor does a really good job of delivering performance all the way around, but the limits of gigabit Ethernet eventually come into play.

 

The DS212 should be used with a redundant array like SHR or RAID 1 99% of the time. RAID 0 does not keep your data safe from a drive failure, but with RAID 1 and SHR you can have one disk completely fail and not lose data.
