The project for certification has three distinct phases. It begins with first two scenarios for a benchmark test, followed by a maximum performance test. Milestone Xprotect recording servers were analyzed for both optimal and degraded mode, for the performance rating review. And it was observed Pivot3 system configured with RAID6E volumes displayed above par throughput, in both the modes, when compared to industry standards.
