I started testing with RAID 0. As noted previously, I tested this NAS in a 10Gbe configuration, so we see playback numbers start at 548 MB/s and move to a peak of 657 MB/s. File copy reached 663 MB/s to the NAS and 408 MB/s from it.


RAID 5 tones things down only slightly with 545, 583 and 665 MB/s for our playback and 402 from the NAS and 632 MB/s to the NAS.


Stepping to dual redundancy, we see a peak of 665 MB/s in playback with Record touching 636 MB/s. Our file copy numbers took a slight hit coming from the NAS at 392 MB/s, but to the NAS we still see 646 MB/s.
