Testing the DS419slim, I decided to pull up results from past Synology appliances for comparison, including the 416slim. With RAID 0, the 419 was slightly quicker by a few MB/s in almost every category tested.

RAID 5 showed a good boost in playback and file copy operations, likely due to the use of SSDs.

RAID 6 again showed solid performance in video playback reaching 116 MB/s, while 2 and 4x playback top at 79 and 98 MB/s respectively.

Benchmarks - Sequential and Workloads

Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes at QD32.

Sequential read performance was solid across the board, easily maximizing the potential of the hardware and gigabit ethernet at 115 MB/s.

Sequential write showed a little more variability with 106 MB/s in RAID 0, 87 MB/s in RAID 5 and 61 MB/s in RAID 6.

Switching to workloads the DS419slim takes advantage of the SSDs pushing past many of the systems in our charts. In RAID 0, database reaches 2000 IOPS, while Email and Workstation hit 2300 and 1700 IOPs respectively.

RAID 5 goes to the 419slim pushing past 2500 IOPs in nearly every category.

RAID 6 looks to be a similar story as database touches 3000 IOPs along with Workstation at 3100 IOPs.
