Asustor AS7008T 8-bay Intel Haswell SMB NAS Review

Asustor is one of the recent entrants in the NAS market. Over the last couple of years, they have tried to play in the same space as QNAP and Synology (with units based on the Atom D2700 as well as Evansport). However, they have recently opted to put more emphasis on the mid- to upper-range of the market with Haswell-based products in the 70-series. We have the AS7008T, the 8-bay variant, in-house for review. Read on to see how the unit stacks up against the competitors in this space.
