Designed for home and small/medium business use, especially those with 200 or more users, the AS7008T 8-Bay Enterprise & Multimedia SMB NAS Server from Asustor is a powerful NAS server with hardware for enterprise and multimedia applications. This 8-bay unit has been designed with AES 256-bit encryption for secure centralized data storage, while Enterprise features and stability are built into the hardware design. This unit has 8 drive bays, each of which natively supports 3.5" and 2.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s and SATA II 3 Gb/s hard drives and SSDs.

The AS7008T is powered by a 3.5 GHz Intel Core i3 Dual-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple functions simultaneously. The built-in 2GB of DDR3 RAM will allow quick access to frequently-used files and programs. Network connectivity is achieved via the 2 x Gigabit Ethernet ports and external peripherals may be connected using the 3 x USB 3.0 ports, 2 x USB 2.0 ports, and 2 x eSATA ports. Additionally, there is 1 x HDMI 1.4a output for connecting this NAS to HDMI-compatible devices at resolutions up to 4K 2160p, as well an optical S/PDIF audio-out. Should you decide to upgrade to a 10GbE high-speed backbone network, the AS7008T does come equipped with a 10GbE network card expansion slot.

Asustor ships the AS7008T with the ADM 2.0 operating system, which helps simplify managing your NAS, as well as accessing and sharing data. Asustor also lets users download and install add-on packages that are designed for individual or business needs. A variety of RAID modes are supported, which help provide users with data redundancy, speed, or a combination of both. Supported RAID modes include RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, Single Disk, and JBOD. For those who use virtual environments such as VMware, Citrix and Hyper-V, the AS7008T provides cross-platform file sharing, allowing you to easily connect to your NAS device if you are using Windows, Mac OS, or Linux. Using backup utilities such as Backup Plan and Apple Time Machine you can easily backup data from a Windows PC or Mac directly onto NAS server. Also featured is a Network Recycle Bin, Windows ACL support, and SMB 2.0 support. The AS7008T operates on 100-240 VAC and includes an AC power cord, 2 x RJ-45 LAN (Cat 5e) cables, 32 x flat head screws (for 3.5" HDDs), and 32 x flat head screws (for 2.5" HDDs).

Data Transfer Performance
ADM 2.3 supports SMB 2.0, which helps reduce the burden of network traffic on the NAS while simultaneously providing a greater data transfer capacity.SMB 2.0 has the capability to increase Windows networking performance and can also increases the number of concurrent Windows client connections. Additionally, it can simultaneously open files, making ADM 2.3 even more suitable for large-scale Microsoft network environments
Advanced File Permissions Management - Windows ACL
For IT professionals, file permissions configuration is a very important topic, especially in enterprise environments. Because the native Linux system file permission mechanisms are different than those in Windows, in the past, IT professionals had to create a separate set of permissions for files stored on NAS servers. This also limited the number of permission configuration options that were available to them.

In order to help IT professionals simplify their work, Asustor has integrated Windows ACL into ADM. Windows ACL provides a set of 13 different permissions settings, allowing administrators to configure permissions for individual files and folders that can be applied to different groups and users. Windows ACL permissions can be configured from within ADM's File Explorer or Microsoft Windows Explorer, allowing administrators to manage permissions using familiar methods
Cooling Design
When there is a high load on the NAS, the CPU will begin to heat up, affecting the stability of the system. A common way of dealing with this is to lower the CPU frequency which will then cause the temperature to decrease. However, this will also lower the overall performance of the system.

Asustor's 70 Series devices utilize fans with wide speed ranges combined with a smart speed control mechanism that allows the CPU to maintain a controlled operating temperature even under high loads. Under most circumstances, the fans will operate at a low speed, conserving energy. When the system load and temperature increases, the fans will automatically increase their speed to cool the CPU without it having to lower its frequency. This allows the NAS to maintain stability and high performance even under high loads
Multimedia Playback
Additionally, you can also further add a surround sound amplifier to create a high definition multi-channel listening experience
After-Sales Service
Asustor has extended the warranty period on all of its products to three years, continuing to make customer service a priority
Disk Tray Lock Design
In order to help users avoid accidentally pushing disk tray buttons and releasing hard disks during operation, Asustor has added a locking mechanism to its hard disk trays. The lock's flat-head design helps ensure that users will not need any special keys or tools to unlock it, only a simple flat-head screw driver. The disks trays can also be used with all Asustor NAS devices, providing an additional layer of security for applications requiring the frequent swapping of hard disks (e.g., MyArchive)
4K Ultra High Definition
AsustorPortal offers complete support for 4K ultra high definition output. With 4K ultra high definition, the desktop background and icons appear clearer and sharper, giving you an immersive visual experience
Surveillance System
The 70 Series devices help provide you with stress free reliability when installing a surveillance system in your home or office environment. Installing the Surveillance Center App from App Central turns your NAS into a 24/7, high definition surveillance system. Surveillance Center provides comprehensive cross-platform support, allowing both Windows and Mac users to use familiar web browsers to access their surveillance feeds. Furthermore, Asustor also offers the free AiSecure mobile app that gives users access to all their surveillance feeds while on the go. AiSecure also provides the ability to receive instant push notifications from Surveillance Center, allowing users to keep up with the latest developments. No matter if you need to protect individual assets, loved ones, or your business, the 70 Series devices are a well suited choice when creating a comprehensive surveillance system.

Surveillance Center comes with 4 free IP camera channel licenses. Users can also purchase add-on camera licenses to flexibly add new camera channels. Additionally, two different camera license packages are offered: single channel and 4 channels. Currently, the 70 Series devices can be expanded up to a maximum of 16 channels
