I'm mostly working from home these days, with short visits to civilisation to keep in touch with folks. So, my attention is being directed to Casa Buchans' infrastructure.
I have a couple of NAS devices - a nice wee Netgear Readynas Duo with 4gb of storage, and a Netgear Stora with 2gb of disk. There's also the 'monster' win2k8 server with 4tb of drive.
So when I copy to the readyNas device, it averages a mere 10mb/s over gigabit. 10mb/s ? Thats pitifully slow. Like a terrabyte backup (not unheard of these days) will take most of a day.
Talking to a chap at work - he's running a windows 7 box with a RAID SATA controller, big processor, lots of memory. And he's getting a consistent 80mb/s, peaking at 120mb/s (which is maxing out gigabit ethernet).
Can anyone with a bigger/better NAS device give me comparative figures? Because at around £400 for a 6tb windows 7 machine, that looks the far cheaper option.
Any other ideas?
