Single Client Throughput was quite good. In RAID 0, this unit stayed right with the pack. Peak performance was seen in playback and record at 113 MB/s.





Changing our array to RAID 1, we see only a slight performance drop with this unit peaking at 95.4 MB/s.



Benchmarks – Sequential Workloads in RAID 0


Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes.




Sequential read results in RAID 0 had the Thecus unit producing 100 MB/s at QD16 and QD32.




Sequential write started at 57 MB/s but ramped up to 112 MB/s at QD64.




Back to RAID 1, we find the Thecus unit starting out at 76 MB/s at QD1 and ramping all the way up to 117MB/s at QD128.




Write performance peaked at QD32 with 116MB/s.
