TerraMaster F5-422 Performance Testing
This is going to be one of the first NAS reviews where we are using our newer NAS performance test suite. We are also going to continue producing numbers from our older suite for the time being.
Intel NAS Performance Toolkit
The Intel NAS Performance Toolkit (Intel NASPT) is a file system exerciser and analysis tool designed to enable performance comparisons between network-attached storage (NAS) devices.
In these tests, we see the TerraMaster F5-422 compared to considerably higher-end NAS boxes with additional storage bays. It is not surprising to show up at the bottom of the performance numbers. However, the cost of entry in the 10GbE area is much lower with F5-422 and still maintain reasonable performance levels above 1GbE networks.
Let us move on to our new Enterprise NAS Performance test and finish with our final thoughts.
