Media: Kitguru | Country: UK
“The ThecusOS 7.0. is very able, very confident. I have been very impressed using this NAS. It’s fast, it’s solid, it’s very serious. The hardware is very good indeed, that UPS could save your bacon in case of a blackout or even a brown out when your RAID can easily be scrambled. Provided you have a certain level of technical knowledge (or employ a member of staff who does) Thecus N5810 PRO is an excellent NAS that should provide sterling service. If you are a Thecus aficionado, it is fabulous.”

Media: HARDWARE UPGRADE | Country: Italy
“At the back we find a cooling fan which expels air from the front and passes it between the internal components and hard disks. There is no shortage of USB ports, 2 x USB2.0 and 2 x USB3.0, plus 5 x Gigabyte Ethernet ports that can be configured to ensure higher operational redundancy. There is a HDMI connection to connect to a screen, so as to directly connect your NAS to a TV and send it multimedia content. At the bottom part is the addition of a 2.000mAh battery, which comes into operation the moment the main power supply fails, to ensure the NAS is able to turn off in the correct sequence to avoid accidental data loss”.

Features

Running on the newly-designed, enhanced ThecusOS™ 7.0

The N5810PRO runs on the newly designed ThecusOS 7.0 offering an easy to use, intuitive user interface. Introducing several new features including Photo Station, Thecus App Center, User Profile, ThecusOS 7.0 delivers significant improvements in design, performance, and user experience. (OS7.0 phase-in on new production from 2016/03/15.)

Uninterrupted Accessibility with Thecus System Failover
The Thecus System Failover feature is a fault tolerance process that creates mirrored data volumes. With at least two Thecus NAS available, data is copied by schedule and all changes are mirrored between the two NAS. While the second NAS is not visible, it communicates with the primary NAS. In the event of a power or network failure, a scheduled maintenance, or other unforeseen circumstances, System Failover automatically redirects operations to the secondary Thecus NAS, which then acts as the primary NAS.
Secure Remote Access with Virtual Private Network (VPN)
A VPN Server allows users to remotely access a secure network. with VPNs, businesses will be able to utilize a cost-effective, scalable and secured network infrastructure for its client base.
 
Thecus RAID Protection
IT administrators can aggregate multiple RAID groups into a large storage pool to flexibly utilize their entire storage capacity as a whole, all the while improving data redundancy protected with data redundancy and allowing better data protection against multiple disks failure concurrently for large capacity environment.
