Let’s take a look at the test now!
Processor, RAM, and Linux Difference
While QNAP TS-269L is based on Intel Atom D2701 running at 2.13GHz, QNAP TS-119PII is Marvell 88F6281 at 2.0GHz, Shuttle X50V2 is Intel Atom D510 at 1.66GHz, and Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge 72z is Intel Pentium G630 at 2.7GHz.
I connect NAS to computer directly. MySQL is configured for remote connections on QTS as in Using NAS as your Database Server. SugarCRM is download from SugarForge and is installed manually on Edge 72z as a client. All setup with build-in demo data.
TS-119PII is configured with following disk set.
TS-269L is configured with following disk sets.
According to my MTU test, I keep it as default 1500.
If you are confused or interested in the relationship of LAMP, thread, multi-core processor, hyper-threading, please refer to How Multi-Core Processors Accelerate your LAMP Applications.
Compared to running SugarCRM on TS-119PII, if you move the PHP programs to Edge 72z and leave MySQL on TS-119PII, you get 64% performance gain for retrieving 5 contacts. On the other hand, TS-269L is about 10% faster for the same situation in both disk sets.
When there are more concurrent users, the difference between TS-119PII and TS-269L should become more noticeable. Based on the hardware architecture of D2701, 4 concurrent user is the best scenario for TS-269L.
