Thecus Releases N8800+ Rackmount NAS Server


TestFreaks Data











t1

Thecus is a big company when it comes to NAS boxes, and they just seem to be releasing more and more of them all of the time! I can tell you from personal experience that they make good products, I’ve got the N3200 Pro and it’s been running 24/7 for over a year now with no issues at all. They just released a new rackmount nas server though called the N8800+ that features 10gb ethernet for some very fast transfers..

With the N8800+, performance is the name of the game. Inside the N8800+ lies an internal PCIe x8 slot, which delivers up eight times more bandwidth than the PCIe x1 slot found in the N8800. This slot makes the N8800+ fully equipped to accommodate the latest 10Gb Ethernet cards, allowing corporations to upgrade their networks to blazing-fast 10GB speeds for maximum data transfer rates and throughput. To enable smooth operation for even multiple corporate clients, the N8800+ is powered by Intel® Celeron M CPU and comes loaded with 2GB of DDR2 memory, which means more productivity and less waiting around.

Companies with large storage needs will love the N8800+. Eight SATA drive bays provide up to 16TB of storage, and organizations that need more simply have to add another N8800+ to their data center using the stackable feature. Up to five N8800+es can be connected together and accessed via a master system for seamless storage expansion. All of this data can be protected via multiple RAID modes including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and JBOD, and these can be managed easily with online RAID expansion and migration. To deliver maximum uptime, the N8800+ comes with Thecus®’ Dual DOM design, which includes a secondary DOM designed to reprogram the primary DOM should it fail for any reason. An optional redundant power supply ensures that company data is always safe and secure, even during a power failure. And for unbeatable flexibility, the N8800+ also supports iSCSI thin provisioning, and is fully compatible with iSCSI initiators. With the popularity of VMware, virtualization technology is now widely used in the IT world. Thecus® is now the member of Technology Alliance Partner (TAP), and N8800+ is now officially VMware Ready certified.

    I was reading through the specifics on this device, and even though the slot is an x8 slot, it says that the slot is only running at x1. I am not sure what that would do to your BW across that bus, but I assume that you might not be able to run at full 10Gb BW. I assume the connection is capable, but the performance would be much degraded from a full 10Gb link.

    Just wanted to mention that, and then also get your opinion on what that would do to the performance.

    Thanks,
