Testing (continued):

Real World File Transfers - Small Files:

Up next we have the testing of small file transfers. Files such as pictures, documents, and music files probably consist of a large portion of what people would want to back up or share. The small file transfer test involved moving a folder full of MP3 files around the network. One main folder with 10 sub-folders containing a total of 198 MP3 files (643MB) was copied and pasted to the storage servers of interest. A reboot of the Windows desktop system was executed between each test, and different folders were used for reading and writing.

The chart below details the results for reading the collection of small files, and the W4000+ was just above average at about 53MB/s. Not great, but acceptable.

Writing these same files results in a transfer rate of just over 58MB/s. Slightly faster than the read speed, but relative to the other devices the W4000+ is now the second fastest.

The results in the real world file transfer tests were definitely a mixed bag for the W4000+, and it is hard to really gauge its strengths. It can be fast, but so far it has not been consistently fast.
