Thanks. Interesting thing (ZFS out-the-box, no less), but '8-Core 2.4GHz
Intel CPU with AES-NI' (as datasheet puts it) violates my 'non-x86'
criteria.

Way too much power consumption (datasheet states 37-47 Watts), and don't
get me started on inevitable Intel ME.

What I'm looking for is more like Seagate SRPD40, QNAP TS-421U, but
newer.
