Infortrend EonNAS Pro 510 NAS Review - Software Features

Infortrend EonNAS Pro 510 NAS Review
Infortrend delivered the first 2-bay NAS we would ever consider and now they bring us the first NAS in this price category with dedupe. What is dedupe and how can this product increase your office productivity? Chris has the answer for us today.

Software Features

 

NAS products are equal parts hardware performance and software features. One compliments the other in a balanced product. You need more hardware performance to run more software features at the same time.

 

Just because a NAS has the ability to run SQL doesn't mean the hardware will let you run SQL at a high rate of speed while a user downloads Bit Torrent, watches YouTube and decompress an NZB file.

The trend over the last few years has been to load NAS products, even higher end enterprise units, with a massive list of consumer features. Infortrend went the other way and doesn't include Bit Torrent, NZB, media player and other consumer-focused functions.

 

Instead of consumer features, we get a long list of true enterprise features like a ZFS file system, data dedupe, data compression, corrupt data self-healing, snapshot, pool mirror and remote replication. None of these CPU intensive features will slow due to a rogue administrator downloading Dora via the NAS to take home to the kids.
