Again, we don't see a significant performance increase in performance when we increase the load. The Seagate NAS is good for over 200 IOPS in the file server test though, which is a step up from the other workloads so far.

Under an email server workload, the Seagate NAS Pro recovered after heavy load, and was faster than most of the other products in the chart.

We expected the Seagate NAS Pro to perform really well in the web server test after the very impressive performance the Seagate Business NAS gave us several months ago. The NAS Pro performed reasonably well, but didn't live up to our expectations.

Power Consumption

We level the playing field in our power consumption test by using a single Seagate NAS 4TB HDD in each system during the test. This allows us to test the power consumption of the NAS, and not the amount of HDDs in it. It also allows us to test different drive count systems, and still compare the power consumption from the server, and not the drives.

This is the first time we have run our new power test on a smaller SMB system. The NAS Pro sips power in comparison to the entry-level enterprise products that are also on the chart. This test uses just one HDD per NAS, so we can compare the system power consumption, and don't have to worry about one system holding more drives than the other, or what drives are in the NAS. The power drop off you see in each section is idle time where the test finishes, and the system has time to recover.
