"Superior Performance Confirmed by ZD Labs; NAS Solutions Hit the Street at the $25 per Gigabyte Threshold."

"Microtest, Inc., a leading developer of storage appliances, announced today the results of independent performance tests conducted on FileZerver by ZD Labs whereby FileZerver outperforms the pricier leading workgroup NAS appliance by a two-to-one margin. FileZerver is Microtest's recent entry into the workgroup and departmental network attached storage marketplace."

"ZD Labs conducted the performance tests with their NetBench 5.01 portable benchmark..."

"'These results align closely with previous measurements conducted by Microtest', indicated Mike Pfeffer, Director of Engineering, Network Appliances and Storage. 'The superior performance results from the combination of two main factors: a scalable socketed processor, that actually permits users to build even more powerful configurations, and Microtest's three years of experience in developing high performance Linux-based file systems.'"
