It looks like its just a SuperMicro NAS with a different name.

I'm guessing it's the same chassis but with the exablox os/software

I never like how wasteful these units are for storage capacity; hot-swap bays at the front are fine, but I much prefer storage units like Chenbro RM43260; it takes 60 hot-swap drives loading from the top, just hook it up to a 1U server with ReadyNAS and a few SSDs for ZFS caching and you can have a huge, high-performance SMB or NFS server fairly cheaply in 5U's, rather than an anaemic 12-bay system in 3U.

I suppose if you only have 3U then you don't have much of a choice, but that's usually not the case.
