Title: HDS High-performance NAS Platform 3200 Series with 10GbE, powered by BlueArc Throughput Evaluation Using the Common Internet File System ( CIFS) Protocol

Publication date:   09 March 2009
Document number:    208341

Abstract:



Hitachi Data Systems commissioned The Tolly Group to examine the I/O performance characteristics of its High-performance NAS Platform 3200 Series (HNAS 3200). The HNAS 3200 is a purpose-built network-attached storage (NAS) solution that incorporates the BlueArc Titan 3210 Network Storage System under a strategic partnership between Hitachi Data Systems and BlueArc.

Tolly Group engineers measured the throughput of a single HNAS 3200 node when handling file-access requests using Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol. The back-end storage system used for testing was Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) Universal Storage Platform V (USP V) outfitted with 256 Fiber Channel HDDs. Throughput was measured for a variety of read, write and mixed read/write operations from/to back-end disks with sequential access. Engineers also measured the throughput of two HNAS 3200 nodes in a cluster in the same scenarios.
