Single Client Performance Summary


A system like the Quanta MESOS CB220 isn't going to spend a lot of time serving video to a single client system, but these tests are a staple for testing NAS products. We generally don't see this much variation between products, but the CB220 is in another league when compared to the other 10GbE NAS units we have in the charts today.
