Netgear ReadyNAS 4312X Review

Recommended Posts

Just a few years ago, it would have been hard to imagine a system like the ReadyNAS 4312X that consolidates and commoditizes an array of 12 storage bays and a full suite of enterprise services at a price under $10,000. ReadyNAS OS 6 brings a comprehensive suite of storage and administrative functionality to the table, allowing the 4312X to be deployed into a variety of environments without the need for complex manual configuration. Under the hood, the NAS sports a Intel Xeon E3-1245v5 3.5GHz Quad Core Processor, 16GB of DDR4 memory, and can have up to 120TB of capacity (expandable to 600TB with expansion units) all within a 2U form factor.

Looking at the specs on this unit, and it really does look good for the price. We're considering picking one of these up for some cold storage needs, and I'm a bit new to the storage space. This may be my ignorance, but this looks like a typo, possibly? Is it really only doing 332 IOPS / read in that test?

Our first enterprise workload consists a long sample of random 4k transfers with 100% write and 100% read operations. In terms of 4k throughput, the ReadyNAS 4312X performed better with writes than reads. Between the two access protocols, iSCSI outperformed CIFS, at 332IOPS for read operations and 3,318IOPS for write operations.

Nope, that IOPS figure is correct. For a pure HDD system, iSCSI 4k random is pretty tough.
