Internet Security Threat Report 2014

It is clear that RAID is significantly beneficial over JBOD in the performance department, but each to their own preference if you need JBOD for some odd reason. Either way, it’s nice to find a two disk NAS box with native RAID1 support for those who need some more redundancy.

In comparison with Iomega’s similarly spec’d StorCenter ix2-200, with the exception of random read operations, the DS210j is the clear winner in the JBOD round with a massive 17MB/s lead in the sequential read. Obviously, depending on the drives you use in the Synology Nas, your mileage may vary.
