Infortrend EonNAS Pro 200 2-Bay NAS Review - Benchmarks - NASPT JBOD

It's been a long time since we looked at a dual bay NAS product. Most have disappointed us, and others never worked as advertised. Infortrend did something a little different with the EonNAS Pro 200 - they used a real processor and a liberal amount of DRAM. The result is pretty good, but quality doesn't come cheap.

Benchmarks - NASPT JBOD

Since we've never had another dual bay NAS even finish NASPT we don't have a collection of dual bay units to compare the EonNAS 200 to. This unit also costs significantly less than our four bay models so we decided to just show the raw performance numbers and walk you through the data by the RAID level tested with.

 

Starting with JBOD or Just a Bunch of Disks, we use a single drive to test the NAS across the network. I've known of several people that purchase their first NAS and just a single drive and then add more drives as their needs change. With a single drive you don't have any data redundancy, but you do get storage on the network that is shared amongst your devices.

 

We know from our internal drive tests with the Western Digital RED that the drive is capable of 100MB/s sequential reads and writes at QD1 so the Infortrend EonNAS Pro 200 doesn't allow this drive to stretch its legs in a single drive configuration. We do see a nice performance increase when reading back HD video from QD1 to QD4.

 

The NAS write HD video at a fast pace, just over 70MB/s.
