Single Client Performance Summary
In the single client tests, the Asustor AS-604RD does very well when writing data to the drives but lags behind some of the other NAS products in a few of the read tests. When using the system for multitasking, the AS-604RD slows a bit.
The write tests show the AS-604RD does very well in when you send data to the NAS. The content tests show us just how efficient the Asustor operating system is. In those tests, the system is often faster than products that cost twice as much.
When transferring data to the NAS, it's possible to write up to 113.4 MB/s to the NAS when the files are sequential. The sequential read test was nearly 92 MB/s.
