Thread: Hardware for simple iSCSI-R3

  1. #1

    Default Hardware for simple iSCSI-R3


    I want to set a simple iSCSI-R3 server at home. What kind of hardware do i need to transfer at about 100mb/s (gbit lan)?

    In some fora I saw devices with an Intel Atom @ 2x 1.6 ghz, but they reached transfers up to 40mb/s max.

    I have an Areca 1220 8x sata raidc ontroller for the machine. What hardware do you advise?

    Best regards.

    You wont be able to transfer at that speed with 1Gig NICs because of the replication protocol that we are using unless you get a 10Gig NIC then you can reach that speed.
    All the best,

    I reconfigured my xensource machine: E6600 CPU and 8GB mem. Should be enough.
