Thecus Announces the Updated N2560 and N4560 NAS Devices

Thecus is proud to announce the release of the latest incarnations of its ground-breaking line of home- and SMB-targeted NAS solutions. The 2-bay N2560 and 4-bay N4560 feature the latest Intel Atom SoCs, increased RAM, as well as all the hardware that made the original models such a success. Thecus has also striven to improve functionality and productivity through the inclusion of the T-OnTheGo remote accessibility feature and the unveiling of the NAS Application Center online. With improved power and performance along with cutting-edge features, the N2560 and N4560 are pushing the boundaries in home and SMB networking.

"To make the world first even better, we looked first at what made our breakthrough possible: the SoC heart of the NAS. With the performance advances taken care of by Intel's latest Atom and 2 GB of RAM in both models, we turned to the user experience." - Florence Shih, General Manager of Thecus

Highlights: Thecus N2560/N4560
  • Improved Intel Atom SoC CE5335 processor (1.6 GHz)
  • Both models incorporate 2 GB of DDR3 RAM
  • Expanded accessibility with T-OnTheGo mobile access

Intel Atom CE media processor CE5335: low power, high performance

Thanks to Thecus's close relationship with Intel, we have once again been able to keep on the leading-edge of SoC and NAS integration. With the 30% increase in processing power provided by Intel's latest Atom chip, the N2560 and N4560 are able to provide home and SMB users with an unprecedented performance/cost ratio.

Multitasking - now twice as easy

With growing functionality comes growing demands on networks' multitasking capabilities. To help your home or SMB network keep pace with these and other advances, the N2560 has had its memory doubled to 2 GB of advanced DDR3 RAM. With this increase, your NAS can easily accommodate multiple users and their multimedia requirements.

"What we wanted to do with this release was improve both connectivity and usability. As a result, we incorporated support for our new T-OnTheGo app into both models. We also made sure that our new models came preinstalled with Local Display and XBMC so that they could be a plug-and-play media center for users. Finally, we are proud to announce the launch of our online NAS App Center where users can easily find and download the latest official and third-party modules for their Thecus NAS devices."

The quickest and most effective way to access your NAS

Available for both the N2560 and N4560 is Intelligent NAS. Our unique tool for accessing your NAS directly without a web browser, Intelligent NAS is a powerful utility that gives you quick and feature-packed access to your stored data. Browse all of your files, see statistics about your stored contents, monitor your NAS activity (copy/download/log), and also personalize, manage and share files all in one easy-to-use application.

Right there with you - wherever you are

We're a mobile society, and our NAS solutions are keeping up! Incorporated into the N2560 and N4560 is support for Thecus's T-OnTheGo smartphone app. Now supporting both iOS and Android, this NAS management software enables users to access, copy, stream, and edit any data between their NAS and mobile device. Your own personal cloud, from anywhere with internet access.

Customisation, at your fingers

To get the most out of your NAS, you need easy access to the official and user-made modules developed for Thecus products. But how do you make sense of and easily sort through the constantly updating list of applications available on the Thecus forum? The answer is our newly released NAS Application Center.

Making use of an intuitive layout and numerous already available apps, the NAS Application Center allows users to easily find and download modules based on their type, popularity, and NAS model they were originally designed for.

Ready-To-Go

Furthermore, to get you started, your Intelligent NAS now comes with the most popular modules already preinstalled. As soon as your newly purchased NAS is up-and-running (which will be within 5 minutes of powering it up), you'll find a powerful media player (XBMC), a leading anti-virus solution (McAfee), photo server software (Piczza), and a BitTorrent client (Transmission) at your fingertips. Simply connect it to your network for a powerful storage solution, or attach it via an inbuilt HDMI port to any display for an advanced media center you'll love from the start.

The world's first, now better

Improved connectivity, unbeatable accessibility, an ever-expanding list of features, and an unflinching commitment to quality are the name of the game for the newest additions to the Intelligent NAS line. With the latest Intel hardware serving a community-focused list of modules, look no further than Thecus's N2560 and N4560 for all your home and SMB storage needs.
