Title: Network Storage System NSS6100 Four Bay, 1TB Advanced Gigabit Chassis with RAID Competitive Performance Evaluation of Network- Attached Storage Systems

Publication date:   20 February 2008
Document number:    208254


Linksys, a division of Cisco Systems, Inc., commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate the performance and features of the NSS6100 network-attached storage appliance against NETGEAR’s ReadyNAS™ 1100, and ReadyNAS™ NV+; along with Buffalo Technology (USA), Inc.’s TeraStation PRO™ II appliances.

The Tolly Group examined the NAS appliances’ multi-client file server performance using Ziff Davis Media’s Net-Bench 7.0.3 benchmarking test suite. As a baseline to compare against other single-client I/O tests, engineers also evaluated the single client read-and-write mode I/O performance using IOZone benchmark version 3.282. Tests focused on RAID 1, RAID 5 and JBOD configurations, and with on-disk encryption enabled, when supported. Tests were conducted in December 2007.
