QNAP TS-251 with Firmware 0612 and 8GB RAM File Transfer Performance Report

Last time, I test QNAP TS-251 with Firmware 0605 and only one hard drive. Here, I am going to run the same test again but with Firmware 0612, two hard drives as RAID 1, and 8GB RAM. I can see the 64-bit QTS is capable to identify 8GB RAM without any problem.

Anyway, let’s see if it could outperform other Intel Atom processors on file transfer!

QNAP TS-251 as a ZurmoCRM Application Server Performance Report

In Thecus N2560 as a ZurmoCRM Application Server Performance Report, I see N2560 could run as fast as Shuttle X50V2. Therefor, embedded Linux shall be as fast as desktop Linux.

Although QNAP TS-251 has the latest Celeron J1800 and comes with the latest QTS 4.1, it is still using outdated PHP 5.3.28 and MySQL 5.1.36. Let’s see how fast it could beat with previous Atom D2701 models.

QNAP TS-251 File Transfer Performance Report

QNAP TS-251 is the first Intel Celeron J1800 I have test. It supports up to 8GB RAM and the 64-bit QTS is capable to handle more than 4GB RAM. Although TS-251 and J1800 both support up to 8GB DDR3L RAM, I wonder how 32-bit QTS could manage RAM beyond 4GB?

Below is the unix name and version info for QTS on TS-251:

Linux NASE4DDCE 3.12.6 #4 SMP Thu Jun 5 00:31:44 CST 2014 x86_64 unknown

Anyway, let’s see if it could outperform other Intel Atom processors on file transfer!

Thecus N2560 File Transfer Performance Report

Thecus N2560 is the first Intel Atom SoC CE5335 I have test. Although Atom D2701-based NAS may expand to 3GB RAM, they always come with only 1GB while N2560 provides non-expandable 2GB build-in. It should be enough for me and also saves my time looking for compatible RAM.

On my last post Thecus N2310 with Firmware 743 File Transfer Performance Report, I am impressed with its performance. Will N2560 outperform N2310? Let’s see.
