Before this article, I had only heard of Qsan in passing or while researching competing NAS platforms. The fact is, Qsan is a relatively new company to the North American SOHO / SMB market but they are gaining ground quickly with their NAS and DAS products. Qsan reached out mid-June and offered up their two-bay entry-level platform for review, Let's see what it has to offer.

The XCube is the sub-branding behind the entry-level two and four-bay NAS platforms. These platforms are design for SMB and Workgroup use cases and offer a N+1 hardware design, meaning N for the given amount of 3.5" bays or large form factor storage and +1 for the 2.5" "cache" bay hidden behind the enclosure front. Moving into further hardware specifications, Qsan has designed the XCube platform to offer the latest in processor technology, the XN3002T in house packs an Intel Celeron Quad Core operating at 1.1GHz paired with 4GB of DDR3.

The firmware platform is based on the Linux Kernel with fine tuning and ZFS file system support. Qsan Storage Management 3.0 is the operating system for the XCube platform and our XN3002T. This offers powerful storage capabilities along with reliability and protection against data corruption. Features of the Qsan SM3.0 platform include a virtualization ready platform certified for VMware, Citrix and Hyper-V. Further, we have User Defined storage pools allowing you to configure a group of users based on their current workloads, smart auto-tiering allowing for quicker access to data and centralized data storage and file sharing with apps for all major platforms.

MSRP of the two-bay XN3002T comes in at $499.99 with a two-year warranty.
