The RN524X surprised me on so many levels. In our first test, it came away as the quickest of all the 10Gbe appliances we tested in most RAID 0 single client testing scenarios.

 

HD Playback came in at 669 MB/s followed by 868 MB/s in 2x playback. Video record produced 261 MB/s while playback and record offered 234 MB/s. File copy operations saw 743 MB/s to the NAS and 341 MB/s from the NAS.
