Nelson & Associates benchmarking laboratory measured a sustained data rate of
6.5 gigabits per second from a single 2U form factor server powered by AMD
Opteron(tm) processors. One endurance test ran continuously for 48 hours and
transferred over 1,000 terabits (1 petabit) of user data between 96 FTP client
machines and the single FTP server. These data rates were achieved with the
common IPV4 protocol and standard 1,500 byte packets.
