Beta M3 Streaming Performance Testing
I'm currently a WHS v1 user who'd like to migrate to WHS 2011. I primarily use my server for media streaming to my HT, so I want the pooled shares such as in v1. While I'm 95% happy with v1, I still get random streaming issues even with scheduled turning off/on of DE. As a result, I want to migrate to 2011 hoping the 64bit architecture plus SATA2 compatibility will fix the drive I/O issues I random get. So I'm curious how far along DrivePool has from streaming performance perspective?
Has anyone done any testing (e.g. streaming the various bitrate Birds videos). I primarily stream full BD rips with HD audio tracks, so need 55-60 mbit streaming performance at least. Preferably, I'd like it to be be higher to be able to accomodate more than one stream at a time to multiple players in the house.
Also, separate question, can folder duplication assignment be done at the sub-folder level within a share folder or is it limited to the share folder level as it is in WHS v1 (which is annoying)?
