"Affordable" 10Gb Switch

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, I've got a QNAP NAS set up for my video production archive and have been running it off of 1Gb network. It's fine for now, but I have several very large projects that I need to archive and I'd like to get it connected via 10Gb. The QNAP itself has a 10Gb card installed, and I've got a 10Gb card installed on my workstation - I just need the switch.

 

I know QNAP recently released an 8 and 12-port model for relatively cheap, but I was wondering if there were any other options out there. Maybe even a used ebay purchase? Looking for something small. Don't need 24+ ports.

Are you looking for an RJ45 switch or SFP+?

The Netgear GS110MX is the most affordable new 10GbE equipped switch at roughly $200. Has two 10 gig ports, 8 gigabit. A full 10GbE switch isn't going to be cheap, even 2nd hand as there isn't much decommissioned stuff around yet.

I think I could get away with 2x10GbE. I'll take a look at that one.

Looking for RJ45

Asus also has a 2x10gbit switch at around $200.

 

I'm curios however, why don't you run a p2p connection exclusively to your workstation with 10gbe?

I only have one RJ45 port in my office and the NAS is in another room connected to my home network. I don't want it sitting on or near my desk because it's quite large and really noisy.

The MikroTik CRS312-4C+8XG is coming which is looking really good based on the feature set. Waiting on pricing
