Bookmark and Share

02/24/2012- Thecus is constantly working on new ways to make NAS a more secure appliance for your data. Previously more focused on hardware innovation, the young Taiwanese company is now making its way into software development.


ElephantDrive: professional cloud backup solution

The ElephantDrive cloud backup module is designed to work for the NAS administrator and help save critical data efficiently and quickly to a secure cloud storage system. With this module installed, the selected data on the NAS will be protected and real time synchronized to the ElephantDrive cloud. Once enabled, backups continue to run in automated fashion – either scheduled or continuous – without the need for regular maintenance.

Together, Thecus and ElephantDrive bring you a simple, safe, secure, and online backup storage with the following key features.

  • Military grade encryption keeps your files safe and secure
    • Secure 128-bit SSL secures the transfer
    • Advanced 256-bit AES encryption secures the data at rest
  • Intelligent software moves your data fast
    • Innovative delivery technology accelerates transfer
    • Incremental backups process new or modified files
  • Access and share your files anytime, anywhere
    • Universal access
    • Easy and secure file sharing
  • One program to unify your data
    • Multiple devices and multiple platforms
    • Powerful administrative controls for versioning and archiving

The installation and running of the module is simple. For users without an existing ElephantDrive cloud account, an instant application through the NAS admin UI can be completed in seconds and includes a special trial offer: 50GB for free during the first month!  After this period, users can either upgrade to a premium account or continue using ElephantDrive without paying if data is kept under 2GB.
