Infortrend EonNAS Pro 510 NAS Review - Benchmarks - Multi-Client Test

Infortrend EonNAS Pro 510 NAS Review

Infortrend delivered the first 2-bay NAS we would ever consider and now they bring us the first NAS in this price category with dedupe. What is dedupe and how can this product increase your office productivity? Chris has the answer for us today.

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.

 

Three to seven bay NAS are ran in RAID 5 and larger units over eight bays run in RAID 6.

 

 

Throughput

The Infortrend EonNAS Pro 510 delivers higher throughput than the QNAP TS-669L, a six-bay NAS that uses the same Intel dual-core Atom running at 2.13GHz. Compression and dedupe are off in these tests. The EonNAS Pro 510 achieved peak throughput at 56 clients in our custom multi-client test.

 

 

Latency

At 56 clients the latency was still below 3ms at just 2.542ms. Here you can see the large separation between the TS-669L and the EonNAS Pro 510 in latency.
