Single Client Performance Summary

 

Here we use a single client system with a 10GbE connection to the network to run Intel's NASPT against the target NAS products. The Netgear ReadyNAS RN716X is significantly faster when reading and writing large sequential files (HD Playback and HD Record) than the other 10GbE units we're comparing it to today. The content creation / office tests show similar results when the NAS products work with small files from a single client system.
