Case Study

Economical Network Storage for Education
Bookmark and Share
The Problem

In today’s tough economic environment, many schools are struggling to meet the IT requirements necessary for running an educational institution. For a large network of public schools in the rural zones of Costa Rica, their management was searching for an economical solution for their digital storage infrastructure to be able to securely support multiple functions, such as curriculum and administration systems.

They needed an infrastructure to allow their individual curriculum content and data to be readily accessible, providing support for the teaching and learning in their schools. They wanted their teachers and students and professors to quickly access their files at the same time at any given time over the local network and be able to easily share data and media for joint projects.

The Solution

Research was conducted into what different storage options were on the market. Upon learning about the Thecus N2810, they found this NAS to have the right balance between performance, price and flexibility. To be able to fully accommodate the entire group of schools 419 N2810 were purchased.

Upon adoption of each Thecus NAS in each school, students and teachers were given the ability to enjoy secure and easy access to their files and folders with the applications they need at any time from any device allowing them to easily communicate and collaborate; whether at home or at school.

The main advantages of the Thecus N2810

The N2810 is a two-bay NAS, known for its hardware, fast parallel data transfer over ethernet and the easy to use operating system ThecusOS 7.0. The device allows archiving to multiple cloud services and supports the Thecus System Failure feature that ensures full system redundancy through mirror data volumes.

Data transfer speeds are accelerated with iSCSI support on the N2810, which allows IT administrators to easily allocate storage space. With Thin Provisioning built in, wasted disk space is minimalized by providing storage on-demand-allocation and over-subscription capability to maximize storage utilization.
