Thecus N8900V overview

  • 1Description

The N8900V 8 Bay 2U Enterprise Rackmount NAS Server from Thecus combines the latest Intel processor and Thecus's potent software to provide a cost effective solution that can accommodate a broad spectrum of business and personal storage and computing needs. The Value line merges Thecus's quality standards, innovations and high-value hardware.

The N8900V is the unification of power, functionality and frugality. The new Intel Pentium G620 processor, that runs at 2.6 GHz, allows the N8900V to multi-task smoothly, snd balance activities such as data transfer, web serving and RAID building without any delays or slowdowns in service.

The N8900V is a suitable option for consumers in need of an 8 bay NAS, at a great value that also guarantees data integrity and professional functionality. It is a good choice for small or medium businesses too. Its 24 TB capacity can be used as a shared data hub. The N8900V features iSCSI connectivity that offers flexible thin-provisioned storage or simple virtualized environment integration. The USB 3.0 connectivity allows high-speed local transfers and the10 gigabit Ethernet ready feature prepares your setup for the new standard in data center connectivity. It even supports 10GBASE-T, the protocol that allows high speed 10 gigabit transfers over the standard, low cost Ethernet cables.

The N8900V features three PCIe slots to add expansion cards such as high speed 10 gigabit Ethernet and additional USB 3.0 connections. It has an HDMI output for local display without the need of a computer. This output is also used for unlimited expansion via Thecus and third party apps. It joins other Thecus enterprise NAS that support high end SAS drives along with the standard SATA HDD's. The Acronis True Image gives you a well designed, professional software backup solution to simplify your storage and backup tasks.

10 GB Ethernet Ready
The NAS Server is 10 GB Ethernet ready to fulfill high end data center's current and future requirements of high speed that existing Internet services cannot provide.
USB 3.0 Connectivity
The USB 3.0 connectivity provide speeds 10x faster than USB 2.0. The USB 3.0 connects digital cameras and smart phones, backs up large external hard drives and extends the capacity of your NAS Server in no time at up to 5 Gbps. The NAS Server's backwards compatibility adds the connectivity for USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 devices to get the best combination of speed and universal access.
Acronis True Image
Acronis's advanced backup software comes with a slick interface, user-friendly design and comprehensive features to keep your data safe. You can back up all your data with one-click protection or you can choose only the most important files.
Dual DOM
A Disk On Module (DOM) contains all of the critical software of your system. Your system firmware will become inaccessible if it stops working. If a primary DOM fails, the secondary DOM automatically reprograms it with Thecus' unique Dual DOM (OS redundancy) design. This always keeps your data safe and accessible.
Multiple RAID
The Thecus NAS creates a balance of performance and data protection for multiple RAID volumes, each supporting different RAID modes including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60 and JBOD. In case of a hard drive malfunction, you can change the drive easily with the help of its built-in hot-swap, hot-spare, online RAID migration and expansion, as well as auto-rebuild capabilities.
Multiple File Systems
The Thecus NAS Server is flexible enough to handle different types of environments due to its support for multiple file systems including EXT3, EXT4 and XFS. You can simultaneously use different file systems across multiple RAID volumes to utilize the best of each one.
iSCSI Thin-Provisioning
You can get the most out of your storage space with the extreme speed of iSCSI and the efficiency of iSCSI thin provisioning. It also connects through iSCSI for fast data transfer and outdating wasted disk space with the thin provisioning flexible storage functionality.
iOS / Android Connectivity
It is important to get access to your data from anywhere. The ThecusShare and the Thecus Dashboard helps you manage your NAS Server, upload and download or stream data that uses an iOS or Android device on the go.
Backup of data is very essential and everyone has their specific needs when it comes to storage. Thecus's Rsync functionality gives your NAS server greater flexibility with remote backup capability, a flexible scheduler and the stability of a Linux based transfer.
User Quotas
You can divide the massive storage of a Thecus NAS Server among multiple users. User quotas make storage easy to divvy up and manage disk space, for two or upto 100 users.
PCIe Slot
The Thecus NAS Server is ready for a number of emerging technologies. Its built-in PCIe slot, allows business users to add a 10 GB Ethernet adapter for fast transfer speeds or a USB 3.0 adapter card to get the benefits of next generation connectivity.
