01/09/2015-The recent pairing between Thecus and Microsoft has allowed users to take advantage of the feature-rich Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials software on Thecus 2, 4, and 5 bay NAS solutions. These affordable, business-grade, cloud connected NAS allow users to work at the office or wherever work may take them.
Through the Essentials Experience, an intuitive interface designed by Microsoft for users of all levels, optional clouded services including Office 365 and Microsoft Azure can be enabled.
Here is a closer look at what these cloud services have to offer:
- Azure Backup. Azure Backup is a simple and reliable data protection solution that enables customers to back up their on-premises data to the cloud. Through built-in integration with Azure Backup, Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials makes it easy to turn on “offsite backups” to help protect against catastrophes such as a fire, water damage, or theft of the NAS. Backups are encrypted before transmission to Azure Backup and, after the initial backup is completed, only changes to the data on the NAS are transmitted to help minimize backup times and conserve bandwidth.
- Office 365. Office 365 is an online subscription service that provides email, shared calendars, online document creation and editing, instant messaging, web conferencing, a public-facing website, and internal team collaboration sites—all accessible from virtually anywhere, on nearly any device. Through out-of-the-box, ready-to-use integration with Office 365, Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials enables management of user accounts across both environments in a single place while providing users with single sign-on across both environments.
Clocking in at very budget friendly price, (W2000 - $349, W4000, $449, W5000 - $549, Essentials license included) the new WSS NAS from Thecus are steaming with value.
