Thecus brings RAID 50 and RAID 60 to its NAS' - We check out the Performance Numbers - Benchmarks - Single Client CIFS Performance

By: Chris Ramseyer | Editorials in Storage | Posted: Feb 7, 2014 8:03 am

Benchmarks - 8 HDD


We're swapping our format around to show the RAID 5, 50, and 60 tests. This is the first time we've used the new Supermicro SSE-X3348TR switch in a review, but in the coming weeks we'll move our multiclient CIFS test to 400 clients thanks in part to the SSE-X3348TR.

Single Client CIFS Performance Wrap-up


There isn't much of a performance difference between RAID 50 and RAID 60 using the Thecus N8900. This test was run with the host system running 1GbE, and the Thecus N8900 on 10GbE.
