08/12/2013The Thecus® Top Tower N8850 is perfectly designed for SMBs and enterprises that are looking for great performance, multitasking capabilities, and a complete storage solution within a compact tower design. Equipped with an Intel® Core™ i3 processor running at 3.3GHz, with 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and backed up by the Thecus's support and years of experience, the N8850 definitely passed the grade with the famous online French media site, Zebulon. After literally tearing apart the unit and testing it in every way possible, their stance is clear: “With its 8-bays, its processor, and amount of memory of the first order, we were delighted by its fast transfer speeds, responsiveness and operational stability, especially in a highly demanding environment…”

Fast transfer speed

To achieve fast performance results, the N8850 offers many solutions to its users. With link aggregation (LAG), 10GbE support, a high performance processor, and SATA III and SSD support, it is possible to get the best out of this advanced NAS system. This was achieved during the tests performed by Zebulon with LAG activated and Seagate Constellation CS drives installed. “Reading from disks formatted in RAID 5, it is a wonderful rate of 184.5 MB/s with good stability that we have achieved. The writing is also excellent at 183.2 MB/s and was equally stable. This is naturally explained by the qualities of the TopTower N8850 revealing all of its power.”

So let us conclude with a final word from ZzGeek at Zebulon: “Whether its role is dedicated to being the heart of a small-scale network, or just a storage and resources support for large enterprise networks, the N8850 TopTower will find a special place and take a role which it will fill with confidence.”
