Thecus NAS to Support New Seagate 5TB HDD

With their recent 5 TB breakthrough, Seagate Enterprise Capacity drives are among the highest-capacity drives available for enterprise-class purposes. This, along with offering impeccable reliability and power/performance standards, makes them ideal for business-critical, multi-drive server and storage environments - such as Thecus NAS systems. "Reaching the milestone of 5TB hard drive capacity is tremendous news for the storage industry. Seagate's reliability paired with Thecus's trusted technology is an undeniable edge for enterprises in need of large pools of data in energy efficient, high performance storage." - Florence Shih, Chairperson at Thecus Technology Corp.

Early, hands-on access to these high-capacity HDDs was made possible through Thecus's continued, close relationship with Seagate. After many hours of hard work with multiple devices in various environments, Thecus is happy to announce that the Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5" 5TB HDD is confirmed compatible with the entire Thecus NAS line. The new capacity limit is a game changer for enterprises which require a large pool of data. For example, if a 16-bay Thecus N16000PRO is fully loaded with 5TB disks, it can by itself store up to 80TB of data. Daisy Chaining technology furthermore allows you to connect an additional 4 Thecus D16000s (each with 16 bays) to a master N16000PRO. This results in a total of 400 TB worth of storage capacity.

Thecus Announces N8900 NAS

IT decision makers are always under pressure when it comes to procurement of new IT-infrastructure. The pressure comes especially from the finance department that always wants an optimal price performance ratio and the IT-directors who expect the best suited hardware for their needs. So why should an enterprise incorporate the Thecus N8900 in their infrastructure?

The Thecus N8900 supports HA (High Availability), which guarantees you a higher uptime for your storage network by giving you the possibility of having 2 completely identical systems running at the same time- both interconnected by a high speed Ethernet connection. While one system is running as the master system and doing all the computing, the other system will constantly mirror the data onto its own drives. In case of a failure in the master system, they will change roles in a blink of an eye so that users will not even know that there was a switch of systems. After the takeover, engineers can easily recover the damaged system without the need to shut down any operations. Please note, however, that a high data-transfer rate is required for this feature (which is another reason why the Thecus N8900 supports lightning fast 10GbE technology).
