Benchmarks - Multi User Environment

We're rolling out a new test that measures multiuser performance in an office setting. Once fully implemented, this test will scale to 60 users, but we're only working with 48 today.

 

The chart shows both throughput and latency as we scale through the users.

 

Of the five NAS products we've tested thus far, the TS-869 Pro is the least favorable. The TS-869 Pro doesn't show much of an improvement between single and dual (802.11ad) performance. While writing this we have a QNAP TS-EC1279U-RP on the test bench, and that'll tell us if the low multiuser performance has to do with the amount of system memory or a firmware issue.

 

We suspect the low performance comes from the 1GB of DRAM.
