Specifications, Availability and Pricing
With today's NAS servers being so advanced, we divide the hardware specifications and software features into two pages. You'll see why on the next page.
The Thecus N8200XXX is all enterprise on both sides. On one side you have a redundant power supply that keeps the system working even in the event of a failure at the PSU level, and on the other side you have eight HDDs running in RAID. We look at several NAS servers each year and have determined that redundant power supplies are a feature reserved for rack mount equipment.
Inside the box you have an Intel Atom D525 processor that was designed by Intel specifically for the NAS server market. Over the last year we've tested around five boxes with the D525 and found that it delivers higher transfer performance than systems running the older Celeron processors that once occupied this area of the market. The N8200XX pairs the D525 with 1GB of DDR3 that is in a SODIMM package. Users looking to upgrade their N8200XXX can easily add more system memory to the NAS.
Just like the higher spec 2U N8800 Series, the N8200XXX supports eight internal HDDs that can be configured in RAID 0/1/10/5/6 and JBOD. An additional eSATA port is located on the back of the NAS as well and can be used to hold data or for plugging in a portable drive.
All of this data needs to get to your network. Two gigabit Ethernet ports are located on the back of the N8200XXX and they can be teamed for increased throughput or to make a redundant connection to your switch.
After looking around online, we found the lowest price for the N8200XXX at PROVANTAGE; 1,618 USD. Users looking for a true plug in play system built and configured to your specifications should look to AVADirect since they have the N8200XXX listed in their NAS configurator. At just over 1,600 Dollars the price seems a bit high to us, since the N8800PRO is available for right around the same amount.
