The W5000 is also outfitted with an Intel® Atom™ Processor D2550 (1.86GHz Dual Core) and a meager 2GB of DDr3 RAM.  Additionally, you will find dual Ethernet Ports, VGA, HDMI, 4 x USB 2.o, 1 x USB3.0, MIC input, Line input, Audio output, 1 x eSATA, and an LCM display to keep them company.”


The Windows NAS by Thecus comes along with a license for Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials. “Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials is the latest version of Windows Storage Server that is designed for small businesses that want to leverage cloud services in a NAS appliance. It enables cross-premise functionality, providing small businesses with robust on-premises solution for file and print, client backup and restore, secure remote access, and identity management services, combined with optional off-premise services supported by Microsoft.”
