Some users even switched to direct SAN access with 10GBit/s SAN HBA's, but performance was still limited to 100MB/s. Really, I can't uderstand why other vendors significantly exceed those transfer rates. Some users here talk about nearly 1000MB/s transfer rates over SAN.
We are currently running our first full backups and performance is limited by our IBM SVC SAN not NetApp backup storage. During backup copy jobs we see throughput of ~ 750MB/s read and 350 MB/s write for one Job (NetApp A -> NetApp B) and 340 MB/s read and 180 MB/s write for a second job (NetApp B -> NetApp A). I think that is not too bad for backups to aggregates of large SATA Disks.
