These drives are fully automated and managed by our RAID management suite

Exclusive Hardware Design

The DAVE NAS is perfectly designed for Workgroups and SMB by the latest hardware specification. Humanized
mechanical design makes the installation and maintenance much easier than you can imagine. With additional PCIe slots on DAVE NAS, ultra-high-speed data transmission, such as 10GbE, 40GbE and Thunderbolt 3, is also capable for multiple purposes. The latest processor: With Intel latest 7th generation processor to provide abundant resources to meet computational requirements of a wide variety of applications. Up to 4 x 1 GbE network interface: Built-in four 1GbE Ethernet ports which meet iSCSI/NFS/CIFS network data transmission requirements.

Innovative (4+1) Hybrid Storage Capacity

The innovative mechanical design makes the DAVE NAS a versatile hybrid storage device. Without affecting
existing large form factor slots, the DAVE NAS positions small form factor bays for SATA SSD at the left side of the system, this way we can ensure that both the demands for capacity and performance can be satisfied.

The Next Generation Thunderbolt™ 3

With next generation Thunderbolt™ 3 technology, you can connect Thunderbolt™ devices to XN8008T directly with a 40Gb/s data transmission rate. XN8008T with Thunderbolt™ 3 is capable of transferring high resolution video smoothly and handling relative workloads with ease: to copy a 4.7GB DVD video will on average take under a minute.

High Speed 10G/40G Adapter Card

A 10GbE/40GbE (10 Gigabit/ 40 Gigabit Ethernet) network is essential for businesses that demand high bandwidth for virtualization, and fast backup and restore for an ever-growing amount of data. The XN8008T is an affordable and reliable storage solution for deploying a 10GbE / 40GbE environment.
