Benchmarks – RAID 0 Performance
Toshiba sent over two drives so that 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 8TB N300 performs.
Starting off with ATTO, we get our baseline performance. Single drive hit around 244 MB/s read and write consistently, and in RAID 0, we see a solid 445 to 450 MB/s read and write.
Fresh off the testing of the WD Red 10TB, we have a solid comparison for the 8TB N300. In 4K workloads in RAID 0, the N300 holds its own, scaling from 170-180 IOPS at QD1, to a touch under 1000 IOPS at QD32.
4K write was a different story. Here, while we do get a bump in performance, it is steady at 800 IOPS.
Database showed a slight gain of about 130 IOPS across the board with RAID 0.
File Server got nearly the same boost moving from a single drive to RAID 0.
Email Server at 290 IOPS and was consistent there.
We see a solid boost up to 740 IOPS for Web Server, beating out the WD Red at higher queue depths.
Last, we have a look at Workstation, a slight bump in performance due to RAID 0, finishing at 300 IOPS.
