We are testing the Synology Diskstation DS1512+ within our gigabit network which is pretty much as good as you will get for a home or small office environment. It is a mixed network with several 1GBit switches for ultimate performance.
All tests are performed ten times to ensure that no abnormalities can creep into the final results. We copy across several files at the same time.
Excellent, class leading results, limited only by the single RJ45 connector.
Performance is excellent, averaging 94 MB/s read and 83 MB/s write. The fast 2.13ghz dual core processor is able to process smaller data files quicker than previous high end models.
