Benchmarks – SMB Workloads RAID 0




Starting our SMB workloads, the N2810 ran right with the pack starting around 130 IOPS reaching a peak of 230 IOPS at QD128.





File Server starts around 120 IOPs at QD1 and ramps rather quickly to 260 IOPs at QD16, after which we see a slight drop off.




Looking the email server, we find similar performance with QD1 just a touch over 100 IOPS and peaking at 200 IOPS at QD16.




Web Server scaled from 100 IOPS at QD1 to a nice 300 IOPS at QD8, after which performance was quite steady.




Workstation had a better start with QD1 around 140 IOPS while scaling was a bit up and down, the N2810 peaked at 330 IOPs at QD64.



Benchmarks – SMB Workloads RAID 1




Swapping over to RAID 1 Database started at 130 IOPs and ramped to 230 at QD4. From there we had a slight drop to 180 IOPS at QD8 but rebounded back to 250 IOPS at QD16.




With the file server workload, the N2810 performance was quite steady to a peak of 280 IOPS at QD64.




Email server was a bit crazy, starting at 110 IOPs and racing to 200 IOPs at QD4. Performance then stuttered and dropped to 140 IOPS at QD8 before mounting a comeback peaking at 290 IOPS.




Moving on to Web, we find all appliances running an interesting and parallel pattern on the chart. Peak performance was around 300 IOPS from QD8 all the way past QD128.




Workstation has the 2810 starting at 150 IOPS QD1 and moving up to a maximum of 350 IOPS at QD16.
