RE: "I would expect a NetApp 8080 cluster to trounce this...."
I wouldn't be so confident. NetApp have never submitted a FAS based SPC-2 result. Their first ever SPC-2 result was submitted in Sep/15 on the E-Series @ 8,236 MBPS. If they could submit a trouncing result .... my experience in this stuff suggest to me they would!
