In testing, I included past appliances from Synology along with the only other Braswell four bay I have tested, the AS3204T from ASUSTOR.
As you can see in the chart above, the 416play was quite competitive when going directly against the 3204T. Peak performance was 123 MB/s in file copy while playback topped out at 66 MB/s in all three test scenarios.
Moving over to RAID 5, the DS416play topped out at 111 MB/s with record operation showing strong at 109 MB/s.
In our last mode, RAID 10 single client, results allowed for a peak of 114MB/s while playback hovered once again around the 60 MB/s mark.
Benchmarks – Sequential Workloads in RAID 0
Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes.
Sequential results pushed the DS416play as read performance topped out just under 109 MB/s in iSCSI.
Sequential write came in at 116 MB/s in RAID 0, while RAID 5 and 10 produced 83 and 106 MB/s, respectively.
