"Powerful NAS rack system for SMBs"
Bookmark and Share

04/18/2017- LANline has been reporting both in its monthly print magazine and online on topics for professional networking, IT and infrastructure professionals for many years. Recently, they extensively examined the Thecus N8880U-10G Rackmount NAS for small and medium businesses (SMBs).

In the introduction, the magazine already points out the high transfer rates. The Thecus N8880U-10G, which can hold up to eight SATA drives "is equipped with a 10GBase-T network card, thus achieving very high throughput rates.” This was proven by the subsequent practical test. “Copying from the local SSD of the Hyper-V host to the RAID-5 iSCSI LUN of the NAS system achieved transmission rates from 5.2 to 5.4 Gbit/s in the 10-Gbit/s network. In the opposite direction the NAS system even achieved 5.6 to 7.0 Gbit/s. For a RAID-5 array of six enterprise SATA hard drives, these are indeed very good transmission rates. From the Hyper-V SSD to the SSD iSCSI LUN, we achieved speeds from 5.7 to 6.5 Gbit/s and in the opposite direction 6.4 to 7.1 Gbit/s."

Also, data security is handily taken care of. "To test the RAID function, we removed a hard drive from the array after we had just launched a larger copy job. The copying process went on without any noticeable interruption. The NAS system automatically added the hot spare drive to the RAID-5 array and started rebuilding."

And so the bottom line is also very positive. "The Thecus NAS N8880U-10G can be put into operation quickly. It supports popular file-service protocols and can be used as iSCSI storage. [...] With the additional 10GBase-T card, the system achieves excellent transmission values. [...] With the clear and easy-to-use management interface even less experienced administrators should cope well. The Dutch Hotline of Thecus offers German language support. At a price point of about 1,700 euros (without drives) the N8880U-10G is an affordable investment.”

Our thanks go to Christoph Lange from LANline for this test!
