Qnap TVS-1271U-RP review

You’re spoilt for choice with Qnap’s latest rack NAS appliance

A speedy performer

For 10GbE testing, we installed an Emulex OCE11102-NT dual-port 10Gbase-T card in the appliance. With a share mapped to an HP ProLiant DL380 Gen9 rack server running Window Server 2012 R2, Iometer reported good raw read and write rates of 1,112MB/sec and 1,106MB/sec.

Dropping to a 4KB transfer request size saw very good I/O throughout for the NAS share of 100K and 80K IOPS for read and write operations. Adding a second Xeon E5-2600 v3 server to the mix over a dedicated 10GbE connection saw impressive cumulative read and write IOPS of 190K and 160K.

Real world speeds were disappointing as drag and drop copies of our 50GB Iometer test file averaged 416MB/sec and 295MB/sec. Synology's desktop DS3615xs returned a faster 432MB/sec and 386MB/sec for the same tests.
