On the first page of the review you refer to an "Intel Atom Core i3 CPU". I think the word "Atom" needs to be removed...

There is NO WAY an Atom CPU came anywhere near this product!
Thanks, David.

Is this product available from anywhere for purchase? It's an awesome box which is actually exactly what I've been looking for the last 4 years.

There are several specialty vendors in the US that have a very deep product line in storage hardware. Here are two that have the 850X:

Freenas and Nas4Free uses ZFS. My thoughts on this configuration are:

1. Why no ECC memory?
2. Why RAID when you can use zpools?

I can't speak for Infortrend, but here's my opinion.

1. Even though the 850X is a high performance model, it's still not in the same class as the EonNAS 3000 and EonNAS 5000 series, which DO have ECC memory as standard equipment.

2. The underlying technology may be using VDev and zpool; I don't know. I'm not a Solaris tyro, so I can't log in to the OS and see that deeply into the machine. The application SW does use the terms "volume" and "pool" in the disk configuration commands, but RAID is mentioned as well.
