Benchmarks – RAID 0 Performance

Western Digital sent over two drives so we could test RAID performance. Obviously with two drives we are limited to RAID 0 and RAID 1. RAID 1 numbers will often be just under single drive performance due to overhead while RAID 0 is what most will use for that extra bit of performance. Let's see how the 10TB Red performs.


Starting off with ATTO, we get our baseline performance. Single drive performance was 200 MB/s read and write and as you can see above, RAID 0 produced around 410 MB/s read and 375 MB/s write.


The last drive we tested in RAID 0 was the WD Red 6TB a few years back. As you can see, there is quite a jump in performance from the 6 to 10TB models. 1000 IOPS is the peak for the 10TB Red at QD32.


4K write was solid across the board reaching 1350 IOPS at QD1 and averaging out to 1200 IOPS through QD32.


Database showed strong gains starting at 175 IOPs and ending near 900 IOPS QD32.


File Server offered up 600 IOPS QD8 and finished at 925 IOPS.


Email Server peaked at 810 IOPS QD32.


700 IOPS was the top number for Web Server.


Finally, we have Workstation that started at 175 IOPs and finished at 775 IOPs.
