Asustor AS-604T 4-Bay NAS Review - Benchmarks - Multi-Client Test

Asustor AS-604T 4-Bay NAS Review

Asustor hit the market in late 2012 with several models that fit into each of the key NAS categories - today Chris looks at the 4-bay AS-604T unit, and fully puts it through its paces.

Benchmarks - Multi-Client Test

 

The Intel NAS Performance Tool (NASPT) is an excellent way to determine NAS performance in a single user environment. Any review that only uses NASPT assumes that only a single computer will access the target NAS at one time. We took issue with this method of testing and spent over a year designing, building, programming and finally validating the TweakTown Multi-Client Test.

 

The test uses Microsoft Office data recorded to traces and played back to the NAS from up to 120 client Windows 7 installations. We record total throughput and average response time per client.

 

Over time we'll populate the two multi-client charts with several NAS products from a span of categories ranging from a dual Xeon server with 2x 10GbE to a 2-bay NAS and then let the NAS being tested fall into its performance category.

 

 

Throughput

The Asustor AS-604T delivers peak throughput at 24 office environment clients and delivers 563.5 Mbits of read / write performance. The AS-604T actually performs better than the QNAP TS-669L, a six-bay NAS.

 

 

Latency

The Asustor AS-604T also delivers better latency than the larger QNAP system.
