QNAP TS-639 Pro Turbo NAS Part 6

It’s been a long time since I posted something about my QNAP TS-639 Pro Turbo NAS. Actually  I was very busy testing QNAP’s new TS-459 NAS. The engineering sample I received from QNAP is very similar to my own TS-639 BUT it runs the new Intel Atom 1.66Ghz dual core (PineTrail D510), with a 512MB DOM, 1GB of RAM. Also it has 2 eSATA and 4 USB ports. And this baby is VMware Ready certified iSCSI array! Read the press release at Qnap.com.

In my previous post, QNAP TS-639 Pro Turbo NAS Part 5, I gave you some tips to enhance your QNAP device and especially the TCP/IP stack and network interfaces. The post was also full of screenshots from DSTAT taken whilst performing some tests with IOzone 3.321 which is a very powerful filesystem benchmarking tool. I have also used HD Tune PRO and captured results that you can find below. The tests were performed on my new fantastic QNAP TS-639 PRO Turbo NAS with 2 WD VelocaiRaptor 300GB configured in a RAID0 for best performances. The cool thing with QNAP storage devices and especially with my TS-639 is that you can SSH in and tune up the beast although honestly the device is out of the box very powerful.
