Perfect for a Small Business
5 March 2015
Summary: Got this to replace an old file server. Works great. There are a lot of features that we wound up not using but I'd recommend to anybody else. Way overboard for a personal backup or fileserver but great for a small business. Even has room to expand and add more.
Summary: This is the first NAS device that I have installed for a client. Honestly, this has to be one of the nicest devices I have ever touched. It has more features than anything I have ever seen before. This sucker comes with a flavor of Windows Server 2008 called Windows Storage Server 2008.
Summary: Bought a boat load of these units, fantastic for backup to disk storage units. Excellent reliability and nice Win 2K8 Storage server software... Good data throughput when you hook up both 1GB net ports
These units are great , super fast , full windows server and works great with macs.

Summary: I do business IT for several companies and we had ordered one of these a year ago and was so impressed with the drive speed and reliability we've ordered several more since and recommend them to all our clients , they have a full 2008r2 installation on them so maintenance and monitoring is a breeze...

Pros: I usually work with NetApp, IBM XIV, Compellent, EMC Clariion and DMX. I use these appliances for backup targets and physical migrations of servers from one place to another. It runs windows, NFS was flawless if you know what you're doing. ISCSI built in. Oh yeah - doesn't have what you need? It'...
Cons: For the price - There are non. I"ve used IOMega StorCenters (GARBAGE), Netgear, Buffalo, Linksys, and Drobo. I'm sold - I HATE appliances - I've been desperately looking for something fair.... This is a good intermediate solution inplace of a bulky server
Pros: 3rd review, just thought I would add that a recent update added full native iscsi target support via the OS! That was really the only thing this unit lacked, so if that was a deal breaker for you before: not anymore!
Cons: It doesn't make me a sandwich? Honestly: none! The thing just works!
