Test System Setup
In testing the performance of Thunderbolt storage solutions, we utilize the Apple MacBook Pro Retina, late 2013 model, which is currently running OS X 10.9.1. Full system specifications are available above. To create RAID volumes in OS X, I use Apple Disk Utility with 64K stripe size. In addition to this, we use a Windows test system (seen above) for Thunderbolt appliances that support. Benchmarks used in Windows include IOMeter 1.1; all volumes use a 128K-stripe size, and are tested without a file system.
Above, we have the LaCie setup assistant. This software will allow you to partition your storage for use with Windows and OS X.
Above, we have the partition slider that allows you to choose how large you would like each partition.
The last page allows you to select additional software, if you want to install it.
