Summary: We work in post-production video with extremely demanding data transfer amounts. 4 users are rigged with 10 gigabit cards, the rest on gigabit. We are getting better speeds than if we were working off local SSDs, even when accessing it simutaneously. The administration is a breeze. Not much IT skill is needed to set it up, but its still very versitile and powerful.
Blazingly fast server when equipped with 10Gb ethernet..
8 January 2014
Summary: This NAS is smoking fast if you have a 10Gb ethernet setup.. with iSCSI setups, you get 1 Gibabytes (not bits) transfer rates! File transfer speeds under Samba and AFP werent as fast, but WAY faster than standard gigabit ethernet. Almost went with the 12-bay big brother, but this 8-bay gets the same performance. Decided it was worth spending the money on 10Gb ethernet instead of buying 4 more drives.. WELL WORTH IT! NAS comes loaded with features and a simple setup.
