Benchmarks – Sequential and Mixed Workloads


Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes with a Queue Depth of 128




Sequential write was the lowest I have seen from a 10Gbe NAS to this point, but read performance rivaled top units. Numbers came in at 711 MB/s read and 471 MB/s write.





RAID 5 had the highest read performance of any 10Gbe appliance I have tested at 743 MB/s. Write performance was still low in comparison, reaching just 383 MB/s.




Last up we swapped the 1817 over to RAID 6. Here we reached 754 MB/s read and 336 MB/s write.



Mixed Workloads




Database workload testing gave us near 11K IOPS for RAID 0, 7K for RAID 5 and 2K with RAID 6.




File Server reached just over 11K IOPS for RAID 0 with RAID 5 and 6 coming in at 9K and 3K, respectively.




RAID 0 topped out at 9K IOPS with RAID 5 reaching 5K and RAID 6 3K IOPS.




Web Server really levels things out across array types. In the case of the 1817, we see 11K IOPS across the board.




Workstation rounds things out for testing, here we get 9K IOPS for RAID 0 and 8K for RAID 5. RAID 6 ends at 5K IOPS.
