Thecus announced their newest NAS device, and what an amazing one it is. The new Thecus N5810PRO is built around a quad-core Intel Celeron processor with 2 GHz and comes with built-in Mini-UPS battery and five LAN ports. The N5810PRO doesn’t look like it’s missing anything and looks to be a NAS that could satisfy even the most demanding users.
“In today’s ever-evolving digital environment, businesses require robust storage solutions that provide premium performance with peace of mind that their data will always be secure,” said Florence Shih, CEO of Thecus Technology. “The N5810PRO is designed to equip users with a comprehensive set of applications that will optimize their business environment while addressing the needs for performance and security.”
Besides the quad-core SoC, the N5810PRO comes with 4 GB DDR3 RAM and is expandable to 8GB. The five Gigabit LAN ports allow it to reach blazing throughput speeds of up to 500 MB/s. The N5810PRO supports seven modes of link aggregation including fault tolerance for resilience and port-trunking modes for increased performance. Expandable up to 40TB and support for VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V allow for seamless integration into a businesses’ virtualization environment for quite some time.
Most of us would prefer to have our NAS run on a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Aupply), but it’s an extra box to have on the shelve, extra expense and extra work to find the one that matches your needs. Having it directly built into the NAS like with the N5810PRO is amazing and the lithium-ion battery makes sure your data is flushed to the drives and that the device is shut down properly in case of a power-outage. The new 5-bay NAS also supports an array of backup features including Data Guard for local and remote backups, Data Burn, and Snapshot Backup using the Btrfs file system.
The N5810PRO runs on the intuitive and easy-to-use Thecus OS5 operating system. The re-tooled software includes VPN Server for secure remote access and Disk Clone and Wipe for convenient data management. Users will also be able to enjoy a comprehensive set of entertainment features facilitated by HDMI output and Kodi for multimedia playback and mobile access with the powerful Thecus mobile app, T-OnTheGo.
Units will begin shipping globally at the end of April, 2015 and we’ll also have a review of the device ready for you as soon as possible.
