QNAP TS-453Be 4-bay NAS Review

We tested the TS-435Be in a number of scenario’s that it may face in the real world. The settings for these scenarios are as follows.

File Server
512MB file size, 16KB Block size, 80% Read 20% Write 100% Random, I/O queue depth 128

Web Server
1GB file size, 16KB Block size, 100% Read 0% Write 100% Random, I/O queue depth 64

Workstation
1GB file size, 16KB Block size, 70% Read 30% Write, 50% Random 50% Sequential, I/O depth 1

Database
2GB file size, 4KB Block size, 90% Read 10% Write, 90% Random, 10% Sequential, I/O depth 128

In the File Server workload test over a 1GbE connection, the TS-453Be shows excellent consistency across all the arrays with the notable exception of when in RAID 1 mode. Needless to say, the 10GbE performance is very good.


As with the File Server test, the 1GbE performance in the Web Server test is very consistent across the arrays at 112GB/s. The RAID 6 performance in this test when using a 10GbE connection is excellent.


In the Workstation test, the 10GbE results with the drives in RAID 5,6 & 10 had us scratching our heads as they were the lowest three scores in the test. We re-ran the test four times to make sure this wasn’t an anomaly, and the results stayed the same.


Lastly, it was a real mixed bag of results in the Database test with neither connection speed having the real upper hand.
