Proware EPICa Series EN-T800 SAS NAS - Test System Setup and Comments

Proware brings an industrial feel to the NAS market, but can this product that is built like a tank keep up with the big boys in data transfer rates?

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: AVADirect, GIGABYTE, Patriot, Cooler Master, LSI, Noctua and Seagate.

 


Intel NASPT

 

The Intel NAS Performance Toolkit (NASPT) is a file system exerciser and analysis tool designed to enable direct measurement of home network attached storage (NAS) performance. Designed to emulate the behavior of an actual application, NASPT uses a set of real world workload traces gathered from typical digital home applications. Traces of high definition video playback and recording, office productivity applications, video rendering/content creation and more provide a broad range of different application behaviors.

 

With version 1.71 we are able to test with Windows 7 64-bit, but to keep the results accurate you must limit your system RAM to 2GB or less. With only a single 2GB stick of memory installed you can test with Windows 7 64-bit. Also, a new test was added, Office Productivity, but several tests were removed by default like 3 Source HD Video Playback and Backup / Restore.

 

Today we will be testing the Proware EN-T800A-CM in Intel's NASPT and running it against Thecus' latest large capacity N7700 Pro that we reviewed a couple months ago. Both NAS servers were tested with Seagate 7200.11 1TB drives, our standard drives for all NAS testing. The EN-T800 uses eight drives while the N7700 Pro only uses seven.
