Like any NAS manufacturer, Thecus is always on the hunt to improve compatibility with drives from a large number of vendors. As a part of increasing the spectrum of drives that their systems support, Thecus have today announced that they have added a number of SSDs from OCZ to their compatibility list.
Whilst many people tend to stick with more traditional hard drives as their storage medium, there are a wide range of users who want faster storage solutions and thus they turn to solid state drives to install in to their systems. Over had drives, SSDs offer up superior IOPs performance along with faster read and write speeds and for the likes of data centres, this is crucial.
Keeping the compatibility list up to date, Thecus systems with firmware version 2.04.01.2 will now support OCZ’s Vector and Vertex 4 drives ranging from 128GB – 512GB in the case of the Vector and 64GB right up to 512GB in the case of the Vertex 4.
The update mainly applies to the following models – N12000 / N16000 / W8900 / W12000 / W16000 / N8900 / N8900V / N12000V / N16000V / N12000PRO / N16000PRO , whilst smaller systems should see a compatibility update in the near future.
If you’re in the line to buy a new system from Thecus and you are concerned about drive compatibility, the latest full compatibility list can be found on their website here – Thecus Drive Compatibility List and the latest firmware version can be downloaded from here – Thecus latest firmware.
