Benchmarks – Sequential and Mixed Workloads
Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes with a Queue Depth of 128.
Sequential performance via RAID 0 had some rather impressive numbers. We reached 762 MB/s read and 1148 MB/s write.
RAID 5 showed similar performance through all NAS in the charts, the 626X came in at 709 MB/s read and 513 MB/s write.
The performance with our RAID 6 array touched 709 reads and 719 MB/s write. That's in line for the most part with other 10Gbe NAS platforms which we have tested.
Database workload testing gave us near 15K IOPS for RAID 0, 9K for RAID 5 and 8K with RAID 6.
File Server topped out at 16K IOPS in RAID 0. RAID 5 and 6 were nearly the same as the 1517+ from earlier in the year.
RAID 0 topped out at 18K IOPS with RAID 5 reaching 9K and RAID 6 7K IOPS.
Web Server was a clear winner for the 626X as it reached 19K IOPS with RAID 0.
Last, we had workstation typically where we see a performance jump up with NAS platforms. With the 626X, RAID 0 topped out at 23K IOPS with 5 and 6 hovering around 11K IOPS.
