Performance - File Copy

Vista SP1 filecopy results (Figure 13) for RAID 5 write show the N7700 at the top of the chart at 80.2 MB/s.

While it dropped to third place for RAID 5 read with 74.3 MB/s (Figure 14).

For the competitive comparison, I chose two six-drive NASes, the QNAP TS-639 Pro and NETGEAR ReadyNAS Pro.

Figure 15 shows that the ReadyNAS Pro starts out higher than the Thecus and QNAP due to its unusually high cache boost. But the N7700 starts out with a more moderate cache boost and then maintains its lead over the other two products all the way out to the 4 GB file size.

Figure 16 compares the RAID 5 read performance, which reveals a different ranking. This time the N7700 starts out with the highest performance, but then falls below the QNAP and NETGEAR for the 1 to 4 GB file sizes.
