The N2200PLUS Home NAS Server from Thecus is a pint-sized but stellar server storage solution for your home or small office network. While no hard disk drives are included with the server, it can hold two super fast SATA II drives of either the 3.5" or 2.5" form factor size. This server is also backwards compatible with SATA I hard disk drives of the same form factors. With your drives installed, you have the option to format them in a RAID 0 or 1 configuration, or as a JBOD. So as to ensure smooth video streaming, snappy system responses, and wicked fast file transfers, the server utilizes a Cavium Dual-Core Processor and 256MB of DDR2 memory.

Alternatively, you can also configure the server to be a Direct Attached Storage device. In addition, you can backup your files with the included software options: Thecus' Backup Utility, Nsync, and Acronis OEM Backup. Plus, the N2200PLUS supports Mac Time Machine so you can backup your entire Mac hard drive easily.
