The customers are currently using the Windows 2003 64bit Operating System, in order to advance the access bandwidth of the storage system, they want to adopt the T series storage delivery-attached the 10 GE network. They query if they are compatible.
The 10 GE network of the T series storage takes the common interface mode, and it’s compatible with the Windows 2003 Operating System. However, when execute the testing, we find the executing speed is not steady. Because the 10 GE is a rather newer technology, the Windows 2003 Operating System can’t fully use the advantage of the 10 GE network, contrastively, the Windows 2008 has improved much about supporting the 10 GE network. In order to take advantage of the 10 GE interface technology, we suggest that using the Windows 2008 to substitute the current Windows 2003.
