Seagate IronWolf Health Management (IHM)

Boost Your Thecus NAS Health

Thecus NAS that operate on the latest version of ThecusOS 7.0 allow for extra security with Seagate IronWolf Health Management (IHM). When Seagate IronWolf class HDDs are used in a Thecus NAS, this health management system allows for a comprehensive diagnostic analysis of drive health and security of your data. IHM delivers three key capabilities — prevention, intervention and recovery.

Prevention

By monitoring hundreds of parameters, signs of possible data loss can be quickly detected. When this occurs it will send a recommendation to back up your data to prevent losing it.

Intervention

This diagnostic tool collects information of certain critical items like temperature, connection or vibration of the hard drives. Analysis of this is then utilized to recommend preventative action users can take to avoid having issues arise, helping to ensure performance, longevity and data protection.

Recovery

When disaster does strike, such as a flood, fire or accidental damage, data rescue can occur with no delay. Seagate’s in-house data recovery services enjoy a 90% recovery rate. Rescue is complimentary for two years on IronWolf Pro drives, and can be added as an option on IronWolf drives.
