Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

NAS Benchmarks

Some interesting results here.  Mainly that the 1TB and 3TB NAS devices have the same hardware, network position and so on - the only difference is the spec of the drives themselves.  The other surprise is the weak throughput of the Apple TimeCapsule, which has just been fitted with a new Seagate 8TB drive (exact model unknown).  The local SATA connection is pretty impressive but not amazing.  For reference note that my 1Gbps network should support about 125MB/s throughput.
