Benchmarks - Sequential and Mixed Workloads


Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes with a Queue Depth of eight.




Sequential read results in RAID 0 came in at 52 MB/s, and moving over to write operations, we found the NAS to be much quicker at 112 MB/s.




RAID 1 result found the writes once again topping charts at 118 MB/s, while read results hovered around 54 MB/s.



Mixed Workloads




In our mixed workload testing, the TS 253 Pro did quite well, going from 189 IOPS in our workstation workload to 141 IOPS with the web server.




RAID 1 allowed the TS-253 Pro to reach 1104 IOPS in database, while the file server, web server, and workstation managed 746 IOPS, 485 IOPS, and 377 IOPS respectively.
