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
Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes.
Sequential read had the DS916+ peeking out at 112 MB/s in RAID 0 followed by 116 MB/s in RAID 5 and 117 MB/s in RAID 10.
Sequential write came in at 91 MB/s for the DS916+ in RAID followed by 85 MB/s in RAID 5 and 94 MB/s in RAID 10.
