Test Methodology & Setup

The test setup and methodology of a DAS is very similar to a NAS. The two kind of storage options are very similar in their usage setups, and as such, I’ll keep the reviews and tests close by each other. As part of the testing, I’ll load the DAS itself with Western Digital’s 6TB RED NAS drives.

Intel’s NASPT software does require us to drop the memory down to 2GB, as using any more would lead to data caching and skew the results in a big way.

I will be testing the DAS box performance under each of the RAID options that it has available as well just a single drive. I will run each test 5 times on each drive mode after which the best of the five results in each category is selected for use in the charts.

Test system:

SuperMicro_X11SAE-Photo-storage and network test setup

Disks in Product:


We would like to thank our sponsors for supplying us with the components needed for the test system as well as drives.

Software used:

With a device of this sort having so many different applications, Intel’s NASPT software covers all the bases and also gives us a set of results that we will be able to utilise and compare those against other similar systems.

Intel NASPT (Network Attached Storage Performance Toolkit) performs its test by transferring varying sizes and quantities of data to and from the device based on twelve different scenarios.
