NAS Choice

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Can someone recommend me a decent 3.5 inch 8 bay NAS that is capable of 10Gbp/s speeds (RJ45 preferred, but SFP is ok also), and that can actually hit those speeds and not just 500-600Mbp/s due to an under-powered CPU?

 

Also, are there any options out there for an 8 bay external drive enclosure (cold storage as such - NAS features not absolutely required) that has a high speed data connection of some-sort onboard.

You won't hit a sustained 1GB/s on spinning rust with just 8 drives. You'll need a NAS capable of accepting NVMe m.2 drives as well for caching purposes.

 

A prebuilt NAS appliance like that will set you back a good chunk of change. Somewhere around the 1-2 grand mark.

 

Might be cheaper to get a prebuilt PC with enough drive bays and add a cheap 10GbE NIC.

Hypothetically, lets just say i'm going to be running 8 14tb drives in raid 0 or Raid 5 with a cache drive, what 10gb products would be most suitable? Thanks in advance
