SANS - Survey on application security programs

To test read and write performance, we connected the ix4-200d to a Gigabit switch (jumbo frames disabled) and moved a 901MB file to and from an Intel Q9450 quad core PC with 4GB Ram running Windows Vista SP2. A 1GB Ramdisk was installed to remove any potential bottlenecks on the PC side of things.

Performance Tests

Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d

Read speeds are excellent for day-to-day usage
Longer bars are better

Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d

Write performance is average, probably due to the complexity of handling four drives
Longer bars are better

Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d

Sublime load and idle power consumption – alas, no scheduled on/off mode
Shorter bars are better

Read speeds are excellent, performing as well as you can expect from any top-end Nas, while write speeds are slower than the fastest 2-drive Nas boxes, but average for a four drive Nas. We also tested the same PC with an RTM copy of Windows 7 installed, which produced slightly faster Raid 5 and JBOD speeds, but the same Raid 10 speeds.
