Starting our single client testing with our BeyondCloud setup in RAID 0. We find it not doing quite as good as the Seagate with video playback, but on par with file copy operations.

Swapping over to RAID 1, we find similar results with video playback results hovering around the 50 MB/s mark, while file copy operations sit around 45 MB/s.
