Small Tree ST-RAID Mobile Testing Completed

COW Blogs : walter biscardi's Blog : Small Tree ST-RAID Mobile Testing Completed
Well we’re finished testing the Small Tree ST-RAID Mobile box. We only had it running for about 10 or 11 days in production and in that time, all was well Some permissions issues that need to be worked out, but nothing that affected production.

Overall the concept is great. Obviously with this short of a test, there’s no way for me to know how it will hold up when you really start hammering on the RAID like we do our Maxx Digital Final Share SAN. We only had material on 2 of the 4 virtual partitions and barely enough media on there to put a dent in the 32TB available. We only had 3 users accessing the unit at any one time so we never did get to test out 6 or 7 workstations all pulling from the data at the same time.

So the verdict is… well I don’t really have a verdict yet. The box really needs to be hammered and abused for a few months before we’ll really know how it compares to the Final Share SAN. That system has had its ups and downs but overall has been very solid in over 2 years of just being hammered by our production schedule and huge documentary projects.

I look forward to seeing how other users report on the ST-RAID Mobile when it rolls out to the public later in October.
