Introduction

 

There is no doubt the NAS platform has evolved immensely in the last ten years. Asustor has grown rapidly in this same time frame coming into the market mid-2011. Back then NAS systems were simple, Marvell powered solutions designed as pure storage platforms for the entire home. Since then, Synology, Qnap, and Asustor have pushed each other in the consumer space to the point where we now have full app ecosystems, extremely powerful platforms with legit x86-64 processors and 4-8GB of memory has become standard.

The AS6302T is an Intel Apollo Lake platform. This unit takes advantage of the Celeron J3355 SoC that operates at 2.0GHz with burst capabilities to 2.5GHz. Memory is preinstalled at 2GB, upgradable to 8GB with SO-DIMM slots and the two-bay design allows for 28TB of raw storage capacity with IronWolf 14TB drives. Asustor does support drive expansion over USB 3.0, and the 6302T offers three Type-C ports and one USB-C. Gigabit Ethernet is the backbone of connectivity for this unit with two ports available while a single HDMI 2.0 port allows connectivity to your 4K TV.
