Features

  • 10GbE Ready
    High-end data centers often need a level of speed that today's average Internet cannot provide. This Thecus NAS is 10Gb Ethernet ready to satisfy the toughest needs of today and tomorrow.

  • Acronis True Image
    Thecus brings the best to the table with Acronis's advanced backup software. Back up all your data with One-click Protection or pick and choose only your most important files. Acronis sports a slick interface, user-friendly design, and comprehensive features to keep your data safe.
  • Multiple RAID
    When it comes to data management, Thecus NAS truly let you have it your way. Create multiple RAID volumes each supporting different RAID modes including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 and JBOD for your own balance of performance and data protection. Should a hard drive malfunction occur, changing one is simple thanks to online RAID migration and expansion, hot spare, and auto rebuild.
  • Multiple File Systems
    Support for multiple file systems including EXT3, EXT4, Btrfs  and XFS, gives Thecus NAS flexibility to handle many different types of environments. Users can simultaneously use different file systems across multiple RAID volumes to get the best of each one.

  • iSCSI Thin-Provisioning
    Get the most out of your storage space with the extreme speed of iSCSI and the efficiency of iSCSI thin provisioning. Connect through iSCSI for the fastest data transfer speeds available and make wasted disk space a thing of the past with thin provisioning's flexible storage functionality.
  • iOS/Android Connectivity
    In the modern world, nothing is as important as reaching your data from anywhere. With T-OnTheGo and the T- Dashboard, you can manage your NAS, and upload to and download/stream from your NAS using an iOS or Android device on the go.
  • Rsync
    Backing up your data is very necessary, and everyone has specific needs when it comes to storage. Thecus's Rsync functionality gives users great flexibility with remote backup capability, a flexible scheduler, and the stability of Linux-based transfer.
  • User Quota
    Divide the massive storage of a Thecus NAS among multiple users. Whether there are two users or 100, user quotas make it easy to divvy up and manage disk space.

  • PCI-e slot
    Thecus NAS products are ready for a number of emerging technologies. Through the built in PCI-e slot, business users can add a 10G Ethernet Adaptor for lighting fast transfer speeds.

* The Intel 945 chipset can decode 4GB of DRAM, but the BIOS cannot expose all of 4GB to the OS because the chipset is limited to a maximum 4GB address space; and does not support memory remapping. Memory that is above 3GB is reserved for hardware in order to function, and thus cannot be used for addressing RAM (two different things cannot utilize the same physical address). This is a hardware limit of the Intel chipset.
