Title: BlueArc Titan 3210 Network Storage System Throughput Evaluation with the Common Internet File System (CIFS) Protocol

Publication date:   06 March 2009
Document number:    208352

Abstract:

BlueArc Corporation commissioned The Tolly Group to examine the I/O performance characteristics of the Titan 3210 Network Storage System, a purpose-built network storage solution.

Tolly Group engineers measured the throughput of a single Titan 3210 node when handling file-access requests using the Common Internet File Systems (CIFS). The back-end storage system used for testing was Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) Universal Storage Platform V (USP V) outfitted with 256 Fibre Channel (FC) 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 Titan 3210 nodes in cluster in the same scenarios. BlueArc’s Titan 3210 Network Storage System delivered near wire-speed, 10-GbE throughput conducting sequential read operations for various block sizes using CIFS file system and doubled its performance in the same tests by clustering two nodes.

Tests were conducted in October 2008.
