Really, 2.7GB/s for 4x4TB disks in RAID10 seems totally unreasonable (I 
guess they're not SSD drives...)

I think that in the best conditions that could give about 200-250MB/s 
max, totally sequential writes, etc.

Don't know why iSCSI is so slow, have you checked CPU usage on both sides?

Anyhow your test copy is too small, use a file that at least is double 
the available RAM on storage server, or otherwise force sync.
