Treat multiple NAS as a single, expandable virtual disk
Bookmark and Share

11/04/2010- Thecus brings you right up to the forefront of storage technology, but no one can remain on top forever without being flexible. Thecus NAS are well prepared for new data and performance demands, with malleable specifications to push past your needs. With normal RAID and iSCSI expansion within a single NAS, adding more or larger disks can expand your available data capacity. Although this is a very useful and important function, the user is still limited by the capacity of a single NAS. By stacking your NAS, you are adding extra NAS to multiply your capacity, not just add to it. Stacking gives you a totally different scale of adjustability.

When one NAS is used in a large business that deals with a lot of data, even an impressive storage capacity like 10 or 14 terabytes may not be enough. Taking the Thecus N7700PRO as an example, stacking as many as 6 NAS on top of each other increases your storage capacity up to an astounding84 terabytes! That's more than enough even for the most data intensive activities. Storing video for massive film projects, compiling huge photo databases, and simultaneously supporting hundreds of employees data needs is now well within your reach without a server-size price tag.

The value of data access continuity in the workplace cannot be overstated. When a server goes down for even a short time, business grinds to a halt. Your data remains intact while the capacity expands immensely, all the while being accessed at one location through a shared IP address to keep things organized and simple. Thecus stackability allows your iSCSI partition to be expanded with extra NAS all at once or one at a time without any hassle or risk at all. Stacking NAS gives users the freedom to start small and let their data capacity expand with their business needs.

*The Thecus NAS stacking function is available for all Thecus NAS.
