“The W5810 is a very capable NAS for SMB use ”.
Bookmark and Share

06/08/2017 – KitGuru has carved out a name for itself in recent years in the technology journalism arena.  Last month, the team looked at the Thecus Windows 5-bay NAS, the W5810.

Windows-based NAS devices are rare and Thecus is one of the very few companies that offer a full range of devices using a Microsoft platform both in the SMB/SOHO market space and in the Enterprise segment.

“Designed for small and medium businesses of up to 50 employees, the W5810 uses Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials as the operating system. A very neat design feature is that this OS is stored on its own separate drive – a 64GB SSD (ADATA SP600) which leaves all five drive bays free for storage purposes.

The W5810 comes with a free Windows license. “Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials is a powerful chunk of software offering support for Data Deduplication, Active Directory, Storage Spaces, automatic client computer backup and restore and a whole lot more besides.”

“The W5810 seamlessly integrate into a Windows based business network. It also provides support for Microsoft’s Online Services; Azure Active Directory and Azure Backup, Office 365 and Intune as well as Exchange Server to manage emails.”

The final words of KitGuru were, “if you have a working knowledge of the Windows Server environment or have the time to get to grips with the software, the W5810 is a very capable NAS for SMB use.”

  • Quick and Easy to set up.
  • Separate drive for the OS.
  • Client Backup and recovery service.
  • Windows Storage Spaces.
  • Seamless integration into a Windows-based business environment.
