12/30/2015 - ComputerBase is one of the largest online IT-medias in Germany. It not only shows the latest news and reviews about the IT-industry, it also provides one of the biggest communities, the ComputerBase forum. Recently, they got their hands on two NAS from Thecus, the W2000+ and the W4000+.
“The Intel Atom D2701 provides two CPU cores with four threads with a tacting of 2.13 GHz. There are a lot of possibilities when it come to connections; including an eSATA-port, HDMI, and each model is also equipped with an SD-card reader and audio output.”
The WSSE operating system is pre-installed on a 60GB SSD that comes built-in with the W4000+. As with other Windows Server software packages, the WSSE offers a host of features including storage spaces, data deduplication, and integrated cloud services such as Microsoft Azure and Office 365. “Both NAS are using a 60 GB SSD from Kingston on which the OS is integrated. In theory this NAS can be ran without any other discs in it. The big difference between other NAS and the Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials is that this NAS does not come with a Linux-based OS, it uses aMicrosoft Server operating system. That allows different configurations than other systems.”
“These Windows NAS are abundant in functions, features, and connectivity. The NAS systems are trying to walk between two worlds: NAS and Windows Server. Experienced users can use the almost endless features throughout the full x86 support and receive a lot of added value with a lot of professional functions.”
Thank you very much Frank Hüberand the rest of the team at ComputerBase for this review.
