Over 90 official and third-party applications

The latest additions to the Thecus line offer significant improvements in performance thanks to their high quality processor, the Intel® Pentium® G850 Dual Core CPU, and 10GbE technology.Along with a 75% faster (yet cooler running) processor, newly incorporated multimedia ports (HDMI and VGA), and the inclusion of USB 3.0 ports, the new N7710-G and N8810U-G also bring the wealth of the Thecus App Center to SMB businesses. With their power and connectivity, both units allow many users to enjoy the endless features of the growing list of over 90 official and third-party applications. But how does all of this help your organization? Let’s take a closer look at the units’ key capabilities.

Storage and data safety

At the heart of NAS development has been their ability to store and safeguard data. With RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and JBOD available, users can choose their perfect balance between performance and redundancy. Given their ability to host numerous drives, both NAS can benefit from the balanced strengths of RAID 50, while the N8810U-G can even employ the enhanced reliability of RAID 60. And to ensure that your data is transmitted and stored corruption-free, both units also come equipped with advanced ECC RAM, which is able to detect and correct single-bit errors – an essential feature for scientific and financial computing.

But what about external threats to your data? Thanks to free copies of Acronis True Image and McAfee Antivirus, your data can easily (and even automatically) be backed up to local and remote media all the while remaining spotless thanks to McAfee’s advanced scan algorithms. Also, Thecus’s AES 256-bit RAID volume encryption tool allows users to fully encrypt their entire RAID volume, defending essential data even in instances of theft.

Resource optimization

Without knowing what tomorrow might hold, you want to be sure that no matter what your costs are low and your performance high. With the help of the User Quota feature and iSCSI Thin Provisioning, you can rest assured that your storage is shared efficiently amongst all users and that wastage is a thing of the past. And with the N7710-G and N8810U-G’s VMware V5.5 certification, you can rest assured that your NAS is compatible with the latest virtualization technology available.

Adaptability

Being prepared for a changing business landscape means being able to adapt, and with the inclusion of an HDMI output port and 10GbE port,your NAS will be ready to connect directly to a variety of screens and projectors while delivering network speeds up to 10x faster than regular gigabit connections.

In fact, the 10GbE solution offered by the N7710-G and N8810U-G models makes them ready for the next step in network evolution straight out of the box. And with the addition of Data Guard for local and remote backup to other NAS, and Data Burn for permanent backup to CD, DVD, and even Blu-Ray discs, you can ensure that your data’s ready for whatever the future can throw at it!
