Thecus N8900 8-Bay Rackmount NAS Review - Benchmarks - Content

Benchmarks - Content


Photo Album - All reads - wide distribution of sizes

Office Productivity - Reads and writes, 1kB & 4kB reads; Mostly 1kB writes

Content Creation - 95% writes; 1k, 4k & little reads; Writes up to 64kB




The content tests where very small files are read and written to the NAS are always the heartbreaker. Handling small files turns up the transactions and this is where IOPS really comes into play. You really have to choose your drives carefully if you or your office works with these small files, like pictures. Even with solid state drives and a 10GbE connection it's difficult to get better performance than the numbers shown in the chart.
