Are both NICs 10GbE?

Perhaps I'm not representative of the mass market but when I think of 10GbE storage it's usually used with redundant-switch infrastructure. Everything on my SAN fabric is dual-homed, even the cheaper tier-2 storage.

A single 10GB interface and no redundant power, "enterprise"....? yeah no.

This is a small business NAS. Looks like they are using a Supermicro chassis which is nice, just don't call it "enterprise".
