04/10/2015 – Datormagazin is a technology magazine, they focuses on Swedish IT prosumers. It is also the only magazine in Sweden which has a fixed section for coverage on Linux-based devices. This time they decided to test the Thecus N5550. Let's take a look to see what they think.
Almost like a computer…
“It is a little different than the others NAS because it reminds us more of a mini computer than a traditional NAS device. With this NAS, you can skip using your computer because many features are available from Thecus. This is a really versatile device”.
…but with all NAS traditional features
This “user-friendly NAS” provides users with a wide range of traditional NAS features. Starting with basics functions like RAID creation. “It is very easy to create a RAID set. There is support for RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 and JBOD. Hot-swap and hot-spare are also available”. Besides that, you can get great backup service and security “the N5550 provides both Acronis and McAfee license”.
Nowadays, more and more users choose a hybrid solution (public and private cloud) to increase their data security. With Thecus, “you can also back up or synchronize with Dropbox, Amazon S3 and Elephant Drive.” Your critical data will be totally safe. “Thecus beats Synology and Qnap with a better cloud system integration.”
Thanks Patrik Wahlqvist and everyone at Datormagazin for the review!
