Single Client Performance Summary

 

In the single client tests, we see the Thecus N7710-G performance in both 10GbE and 1GbE. Even with just a gigabit connection, this NAS performs very well and competes with the other products on the chart. Using 10GbE, we see a significant performance increase in nearly all tests.
