Single Client Performance Summary
Using a server with an Intel X540 10GbE NIC to the NAS connected to the network with 2x 10GbE SFP+ connections, we measured single client performance with Intel's NASPT utility. The Enterprise NAS outperforms our baseline Seagate NAS 4TB array in nearly all tests. The NAS server's cache does help to level the field in some tests, allowing the gap to decrease. In some of the other tests, we see the Enterprise NAS walk away from our baseline drive.
