QNAP Systems, Inc. - Network Attached Storage (NAS)



What is the performance when I encrypt the hard drives using QNAP's AES-256 bit encryption?

Applied Models:


The AES-256 encryption/decryption on the Turbo NAS is software-based, so that the decryption is performed constantly during read & write and causes performance impact on encrypted drives. Please refer to :How to use the data encryption feature on QNAP Turbo NAS

Example: Data based on the QNAP TS-459 NAS:
Samba Transfer without encrypted volume: (MB/s)
Write Read
94.1 102.5

Samba Transfer with encrypted volume: (MB/s)
Write Read
18 37
