Testing began with our single client testing with NASPT. RAID 0 shows decent performance from the 1517+ starting with playback operations ranging from 261 MB/s to 268 MB/s. Record jumped to 441 MB/s while File Copy to NAS was the peak at 487 MB/s.





RAID 5 was very similar with a small performance hit. Here we range from 249 to 283 in Playback, Record hits 461 MB/s, and File Copy tops out at 413 MB/s.




With RAID 6, I found similar performance to RAID 5. Playback operations were in the 247 to 283 range again while Record hit 415 MB/s and File Copy topped 430 MB/s.
