In our 720p workload, the RAID 0 and 10 array showed steady read performance throughout, while the RAID 5 array showed some jitter.

720p write looked more like a heart rate machine than a benchmark result, as you can see performance was a bit erratic.

1080p read showed a peak of 1340 MB/s for RAID 0.

1080p write performance was once again all over the place. After testing, we found this to be a setting within the web config. We were able to clean up these tests by setting the number of streams to six.

4K read calmed the chart down quite a bit. At its peak, the RAID 0 array touched 1400 MB/s.

4K write had the RAID 0 array showing a lot of variability. This was cleaned up after testing by optimizing the number of streams to a value of six.

Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
