I broke up the data into two charts to make things easier to read with all the RAID modes I tested. Playback and Record tests had similar performance across all RAID modes with RAID 0, 5, and F1 being the best.





In the file copy and backup test, the FS3017 had its best file copy performance with RAID F1, restore was RAID 5 and backup RAID 6.



iSCSI Workloads




RAID 0 proved to perform the best with Database, reaching 75K IOPS. Workstation also crossed that magic 70K IOPS as well.




RAID 5 was able to touch 80K IOPS in Database, with Workstation close behind. File and Email server hovered just below 70K IOPS.




Next up, we have RAID 6 which gave us the lowest performance seen in our testing. 58K IOPS in Database, 47K IOPS in Email Server, and 45K IOPS in Workstation.




RAID F1 topped out at 62K IOPS in Database, 70K IOPS in Email Server, and 67K IOPS in Workstation for the final test.
