It has been quite some time since I fired up an eight-bay appliance for testing, but today, I have the ASUSTOR AS6208T in the lab ready to go.
The 62xx series offers a good number of features starting with the Intel Braswell platform, and AES-NI hardware encryption, which enables you to secure your data without losing performance, making sure that even if your drives are stolen, your data is safe. At the heart of enabling a feature-rich environment is ADM. This OS, as we will call it, carries complete iSCSI Snapshot and NFS support that is VMWare, Citrix, and Hyper-V ready.
In addition to the virtual machine support, this appliance is ready to roll as your very own surveillance system with support for thousands of IP cameras. On the flip side, this machine can handle all of your media needs with Kodi and 4K support. We have support for RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10 is available along with the JBOD or single disk options, while ASUSTOR is unveiling new tray locks with this model that guarantee to keep drives in place during operation.

This is paired with 4GB of DDR3 that is upgradeable to 8GB. Internal capacity is reached with eight 8TB drives for a total of 64TB while supporting USB 3.0 and eSATA expansion.
