WD Sentinel DX4000
8 March 2013
Conclusion: WD is expected to become a major player in centralised business storage, and one of its first efforts - the Sentinel DX4000 - shows that the company has what's required to succeed in this market. Well built and suitably easy to use, the DX4000 offers up to 16TB of storage in a package that's simple to configure and maintain, from both an admin and client perspective.
Excerpt: The four-bay, Western Digital Sentinel DX4000 4TB is the only NAS box we've tested recently that uses Microsoft 's Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials for its operating system. All other comers are Linux-based, which turns out to be a big advantage. Despite being a well-conceived piece of hardware, the Sentinel DX4000 doesn't deliver enough performance or features to compete head-to-head with the speed demons we've seen from QNAP andSynology.
