Thecus announced two NASes with built-in 10GbE.

The 7-bay N7770-10G desktop tower and 8-bay N8880-10G rackmount NASes are powered by 3.3 GHz dual-core Intel Core i3-2120 CPUs with 8 GB of DDR3 ECC RAM that’s expandable to 32 GB total. Both come with a single 10GBase-T (copper) port and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports built in.

Each also has six USB 2.0, two USB 3.0 and one HDMI ports. The N8880-10G has a redundant power supply option.

Hot-swappable bays support SATA III 2.5" or 3.5" drives that can be configured into multiple ext3, ext4, Btrfs and XFS formatted RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60 or JBOD volumes with optional AES-256 bit encryption.
