I don't know. Isn't 8 gigs of RAM towards the low end of things for zfs? My FreeNAS box runs on a meager 4 GB but The Best Practices Guide
essentially calls for 8 GB at a minimum (for pre-caching) and recommends a gig of RAM for every TB of disk space.

This seems under spec'ed for "Flagship."

At first I thought "hey a new case, looks great" and then got sad. Because that case is beatiful.

Actually...

I actually was doing some research into this not too long ago as I was looking into purchasing a NAS for my company, many popular brands only use 4GB or 6GB for single controller (I think these SMB-level models are)-

Ex: EMC VNXe3510 single (4GB)
http://www.emc.com/collateral/hardware/specification-sheet/h8515-vnxe-ss.pdf
Ex: NetApp 2220, 2240 single (6GB)
http://www.netapp.com/us/products/storage-systems/fas2200/fas2200-tech-specs.aspx

So having 8GB of RAM actually ain't too shabby.... Granted, we went with a popular Linux-based NAS instead because of price but I wish I had seen this ad sooner cuz we ended up spending more $ than this model for literally the same spec!!! :banghead:
