RAID 5 testing may seem a bit redundant--pun intended--but RAID 5 introduces another layer of complex I/O into the equation. We start RAID 5 testing with a 4k random read workload, and the Serial Cables SA-ENC12G-01A delivers an outstanding average of 679,146 IOPS at 256 OIO. The direct connection averages 679,021 IOPS at the highest workload. The variance of less than 150 IOPS is outstanding.

The 12Gb/s JBOD tops out at 31,176 IOPS at 64 OIO, and the direct connection averages 31,188 IOPS, a difference of just 12 IOPS.

Once again, the results are so close that the variances are barely detectable.
