Sequential Performance

Testing for the QNAP Guardian was completed with a pair of Seagate 600 Pro SSDs.

Starting off, we found solid sequential read performance, easily hitting the limit of the network interface. QD2 through QD128, we top out at 118 MB/s.

The same can be said for write performance as we see 118 MB/s again from QD2 through QD128.

Workloads

Into workloads, we see Database for both RAID 0 and 1 reach over 10K IOPS. RAID 0 actually hits 12K IOPS at QD32.

File Server, too, shows equal performance reaching 10K IOPS in RAID 1 and 11K IOPS RAID 0.

10K IOPS appears to be a hard wall for RAID 0 in Email Server.

Web Server touched just above 7K IOPS for both RAID 0 and 1.

Workstation was our last test scenario, and the Guardian came away with nearly 12K IOPS in RAID 0 and a touch over 10K for RAID 1.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
