Benchmarks: File Upload Performance
When measuring upload performance with a single large 6GB file, we hit Gigabit Ethernet's limitation again, which is a little over 100MB/s. The DS1512+ was a fraction slower than the DS1511+ while providing considerably better performance than devices such as the Thecus N7700PRO.
Even in our game test, the DS1512+ remains slightly slower than its elder. It's unfortunate that the DS1512+ doesn't raise the bar for NAS performance in these tests, but it still outperforms premium devices from QNAP and Thecus.
The last upload test focuses on our program data, and as we've seen before, the DS1512+ could only match the DS1511+'s performance.
