In testing, I took the latest appliances from each vendor along with the DS415+ for comparison. As you can see in RAID 0, all perform nearly the same, with the DS916+ excelling in playback and record operations. Peak performance was seen at 107 MB/s while the lowest was 55 MB/s.
Moving over to RAID 5, the DS916+ topped out at 94 MB/s again in playback operations while 31 MB/s was the lowest.
RAID 10 reached 112 MB/s in 2x playback with playback and record touching 101 MB/s and file copy topping out at 67 MB/s and 45 MB/s, respectively.
Benchmarks – Sequential Workloads in RAID 0
