Scale Computing Performance Test Overview: It tested a Scale storage cluster against an EMC VNX3 3100.

— EMC VNXe —
Number of Drives – 12
Drive Type – 7200 near-line SAS
Redundancy – RAID-6
Architecture – (2) Storage processors
Network Ports – (2) 1 GbE ports

— Scale —
Number of Drives – 12
Drive Type – 7200 RPM SATA
Redundancy – RAID-10 like stripping/mirroring
Architecture – (3) Clustered storage nodes
Network Ports – (3) 1 GbE ports

Scale fan a set of common file operations including HD video plays/records and file copies to/from shares from three connected clients simultaneously.

The Scale cluster finished the test in 6.2 minutes.
The VNXe took 2 minutes longer, or 33% slower.

Scale offers a storage architecture designed for better performance now and as you grow.
