Infortrend Deduplication in Action - Creating more NAS storage space

By: Chris Ramseyer | Software in Storage | Posted: Nov 6, 2013 2:01 pm

Desktop Test System




Since our NAS test servers are in the middle of moving to a new, supersized rack, we performed the test on an Ivy Bridge system used for testing SSDs. The performance numbers shown today are not comparable to our other reviews since we adhere to strict testing methods, but the three performance tests shown today are comparable to each other test.



Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240GB




We went with Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240GB SSDs for our test today instead of our Western Digital Red 1TB drives we normally use for NAS reviews. The more I research Pure Storage's all-flash SAN, the more I want to test the EonNAS Pro 510 with SSDs.



Data on Disk




Dedupe Off, Compression Off




Dedupe On, Compression Off




Dedupe On, Compression On


Here we see our three test modes for today.


The data capacity on the array goes from 145GB without dedupe or compression to 142GB with just Dedupe and 133GB with both dedupe and compression enabled.


The data used for our test was recently removed from a daily use notebook.
