The N7710G 7-Bay 10GbE SMB Tower NAS Server from Thecus is an advanced high capacity storage solution designed for use in multi-client business and enterprise environments. Built with a Tower form factor, the N7710G is compatible with Windows, Mac, Unix, and Linux.
The N7710G is powered by a 2.9 GHz Intel Pentium G850 Dual-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple functions simultaneously. The built-in 4GB of DDR3 ECC RAM will allow quick access to frequently-used files and programs. ECC RAM is also able to detect and correct single-bit errors, which is an important feature when working with scientific and financial computing.
The 7-bay enclosure has the ability to natively house both 3.5" or 2.5" SATA III hard drives or SSD drives. To ensure optimal utilization of the processors and fast network speeds, a 10-Gigabit Ethernet card is installed in the system's PCI-e slot. Along with link aggregation, network data traffic can be streamlined, multiple network connections can be sustained, and redundancy can be provided in case one of the links fails. In addition to the 10 Gigabit Ethernet port, the N7710G also has two Gigabit Ethernet ports.
The N7710G runs on ThecusOS 5.0, which supports the High Availability feature. High Availability allows you to replicate the data on an active NAS to another standby NAS via 10GbE synchronization. If data corruption occurs or if the active NAS has any HDD problems or downtime, then the standby server keeps all vital data saved and is available at all times to take over the active NAS' responsibilities.
ThecusOS 5.0 also allows you to dynamically stack your NAS units for more capacities in a single volume. Simply designate your NAS as a stack master and use the 10 GbE switch to connect additional target devices. Five additional iSCSI devices can be combined for massive storage capacity when utilizing a 10 GbE switch.
Additionally, to help protect data and backup needs for enterprises, Thecus provides free copies of Acronis True Image and McAfee Antivirus. McAfree's scanning algorithms help detect viral threats, while Acronis offers a wide range of features which includes hard drive replication and restore, VSS support, backing up to multiple destinations, and cloud backups.
The N7710G includes an Accessory Bag with key, an Ethernet cable, a power cord, a DVD with Acronis True Image, McAfee Antivirus, a Universal CD, QIG, and an HDD Compatibility List.
