Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Modern NAS servers have moved well beyond data storage through a network. In order to get the most out of a NAS you have and look at the extra hardware and software features.
The heart of the EonNAS 200 is the Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.8GHz. It's a dual-core unit, the same that we see quite often in 4 and 5 bay units like the Thecus N5500. The processor is most likely overkill for this application, but we'll take over powered over under powered any day.
Keeping with the same excess theme, Infortrend ships this unit with 4GB of DDR3 DRAM. Other dual bay units we've seen shipped with 512MB and even some of the mid level SOHO units from QNAP only ship with 2GB. Infortrend isn't just tempting you to use this unit for serious tasks, they gave you the hardware to actually do it.
This unit does only ship with two drive bays, but you do have five USB ports and an eSATA port so you have a little wiggle room to add more storage. In the EonNAS Pro product family, Infortrend has a 5-bay and two 8-bay units as well. With only two drive bays, you are limited to dual JBOD, RAID 0 or RAID 1. You do get the ZFS file system which is a nice upgrade over EXT4.
This unit does have dual gigabit Ethernet ports, an option we've never seen on a dual bay NAS before. 802.3ad is supported so you can team the dual NICs to nearly double the bandwidth back to your network as long as your switch supports it.
You get a nice accessory package with this NAS and an equally nice three year warranty. Then there is the price. At the time of writing, Newegg had the Infortrend EonNAS 200 for $369.99. I never said this was an ultra-low cost NAS, but given the quality hardware inside, I'd say the price is about what I expected going into this review.
