11/23/2009 – The recently released Thecus® N7700SAS is quickly grabbing the interest of many hardware enthusiasts around the globe. Packing an Intel® Core 2 Duo processor, this seven-bay NAS is ideal for those who need to store a tremendous amount of data and have access to it in a hurry. PC PRO had the chance to test the N7700SAS and see if it lived up to the hype. In the end, they gave the N7700SAS their Recommended Award!
The N7700SAS is equipped with some of the latest tech: "This latest N7700 sees some major improvements as along with a new SAS controller, it has a Core 2 Duo processor and 4GB of memory. Thecus today also announced the N7700PRO, which supports 10Gb Ethernet by adding a 10Gb Ethernet adapter to the PCI-Express slot."
Uptime is the key, and the N7700SAS delivers: "The appliance has Thecus' dual-DOM, which is implemented as two 128MB IDE micro disk modules stacked on top of each other. If one fails the other takes over, thus improving fault tolerance…backup options are good. FarStone's DriveClone Pro secures selected files and folders at scheduled intervals. It has a snapshot service and drive and partition cloning. You can also copy data from one appliance to another using Nysnc.”
The N7700SAS cranks out some amazing performance to boot: "Thecus delivered superb results in our performance tests with drag-and-drop copies to and from a dual 2.13GHz Xeon L5506 Dell PowerEdge R410 returning read and write speeds of 99MB/sec and 92MB/sec. FTP speeds were even faster with FileZilla: 103MB/sec and 95MB/sec with the same test file. IP SAN performance was excellent with Iometer reporting raw read speeds of 107MB/sec for 50GB.”
The verdict: "Thecus' new SAS-equipped appliance is a beast. It could do with more business-related features but it performs well across a range of tasks, making it the fastest desktop NAS appliance currently available."
