Benchmarks: File Upload Performance
The single large file upload performance again saw the WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra 8TB maxing out the gigabit network connection with a throughput of 106MB/s.
The My Cloud EX2 Ultra 8TB matched the Synology DS715 and 215+ and it wasn't a great deal slower than the DS216+ in our game upload test.
The program upload performance was below average at 29MB/s, and given the previous results it was surprising to see the WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra 8TB fall so far behind the Synology DS215j for example.
