09/02/2009 – The Thecus® N5500 is making the rounds in the hardware community, and media from all over the world are taking notice of its strong performance, rock-solid data security, and impressive feature set – an ideal NAS for the business crowd. Computer Pro User Magazine recently tested the N5500, and after subjecting it to a series of trials, found that this five-bay NAS was incredibly strong, and worthy of their coveted Silver Award!
Security is paramount for business class NAS units: "When it comes to enterprise-class NAS units, stability is very important. The N5500 features a unique Dual DOM design that can ensure that the system can continue to performing over a long period of time. With Dual DOM, users don't have to worry about not being able to access their data due to sudden outages. It also supports many different file systems, including XFS, EXT3 and ZFS. The N5500 is designed for high-performance environments with support for iSCSI initiators, allowing data transfer rates to reach full Ethernet speeds."
Capacity, performance and flexibility – the N5500 has it all: "The N5500 provides a complete data storage and security platform, with five hot-pluggable hard disk bays for a maximum of 10TB of storage. To increase the hard disks' data performance and security, the N5500 also offers a complete selection of RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6 and JBOD. Aside from singular RAID operation, the N5500 can also handle multiple RAID modes simultaneously. For convenience, users can also use online RAID expansion, online RAID migration and auto-rebuild. The N5500 is equipped with an Intel Celeron 1.86GHz CPU, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and is the only unit on the market that can function as a NAS, DAS, or iSCSI server."
The N5500 also comes with a bevy of friendly multimedia functions: "As a professional NAS, aside from strong performance, the N5500 also includes a complete suite of multimedia functions. The N5500 can be set up as an iTunes server, a web photo server, or a file server, making it a great digital multimedia center. Also, by connecting an IP camera to the N5500, it can even function as a surveillance system. Thecus has also added their new AJAX web interface, making administration extremely easy and convenient. And with its scheduled power on/off function, you can really reduce the amount of wasted power."
