“Stacking allows using disk space more efficiently, which is a useful function when it comes to storing lots of data”.

“This is combined with the classic features that Thecus has on their NAS servers and so it can also be used as a DAS server, a name we came across a short time ago when we tested one such solution (Thecus's D0204).”

“As these new models are being launched, Thecus is coming out with a major software update (v5.0) for many of its NAS models. The update will provide improvements in ease of use and functionality. In some areas the performance will be improved, including through adoption of the EXT4 file system. In addition, the functionality of Thecus NAS is already extensive. Besides traditional storage solutions…there are also add-ons that can be installed to provide additional functionality.”

  • Extreme Protection 
    Put safety first with AES256bit RAID volume encryption and USB Key functionality. An impenetrable wall of protection is at your disposal to make sure only those you want can access your data, and no one else. Simply set up a USB flash drive key that unlocks your data with no hassle and maximum protection.
