Performance, Continued

To put these results into perspective, the plots shown in Figures 15 and 16 include data taken with the same iozone computer from previous reviews of similar-class drives:

The comparison is done with a 128MByte file size, which is large enough to bypass OS caching effects and show the real performance of the NAS devices. I've also included the StorCenter's results with a gigabit Ethernet connection along with all the other results, which were taken with 100 Mbps Ethernet.

The StorCenter comes in at the top of the pack for both read and write, slightly besting the Synology DS-101. The gigabit connection appears to provide a performance bump for both reading and writing, which means that the StorCenter's CPU is fast enough to keep up with the faster network connection.
