The Thecus N12850L 12-Bay USB 3.0 RAID NAS Enclosure sports twelve drive bays that can hold optional 2.5" and 3.5" SATA-based storage drives, so you can build a NAS server for enterprise-class environments. Once drives are installed, you can create multiple RAID volumes with each having its own RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60, or JBOD array. To manage the vast amounts of data from your drives, the N12850L 2 RU enclosure is powered by a 3.7 GHz Intel Core i3-4170 processor along with 4GB of ECC DDR3 RAM. Moreover, data is protected with hot-spare support, AES 256-bit encryption, and Antivirus software.
The N12850L comes with iSCSI and thin provisioning support, letting users mount storage volumes as local drives as well as eliminating wasted storage space. You can sync data to other servers by using Data Guard, and the high-availability feature automatically connects to your backup server in the event the primary fails. Aside from safeguarding data, the N12850L runs on a 500W power supply and supports battery backup systems.
Thecus has armed this NAS with four Ethernet ports, which shares data to connected users. For improving the amount of connected users and delivery of data, the N12850L has three PCIe slots that can accommodate user supplied 10GbE Ethernet adapters. Other notable connections include two USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports so the system can access printers, external storage units, and other devices.
