I'm almost certain you want to know how well this NAS does against the full-size Intel appliances. As I mentioned previously, this appliance is more of purpose-built storage and streaming solution, so I suspect it will do quite well. I started with RAID 0 as I normally do and it's quite apparent this solution has its strong points in multiple stream playback.
Moving over to RAID 5, I feel the device did rather well with the peak of performance in multiple streams while the lowest was in file copy operations.
RAID 10 on this solution was again a solid performer. In two, three, and four playbacks, it produced some impressive number - at times higher than the larger appliances. Copy to NAS topped out at 80 MB/s and from the NAS was 55 MB/s.
Benchmarks – Sequential Performance
The DS416slim, in a sort of teal color in the charts, managed to pull in 109 MB/s in RAID 0 while moving to RAID 10 it was able to top 111 MB/s. RAID 5 was its lowest at 87 MB/s read.
Moving over to write performance, RAID 0 brought in 104 MB/s while RAID 5 and 10 reached 81 MB/s and 79 MB/s, respectively.
