The N5550 5 Bay Enterprise Tower NAS Server from Thecus is ideal for small installations and mobile users. Advanced technologies have been used to develop the NAS Server. It features an Intel Atom processor, which is designed to work without fans, thus reducing the server's noise and power consumption. Equipped with large amounts of DDR3, the CPUs provide better performance. The NAS Server supports multi-user environments, web hosting, intense backup, data encryption, application serving, heavy RAID computations and HD multimedia streaming. The N5550 NAS features McAfee antivirus software, which protects your sensitive data from viruses. It has an embedded PCIe slot. Simply plug a screen through a HDMI output, which enables you to check your server without a computer. You can directly attach a keyboard and mouse to start data management via HDMI.

The N5550 also supports VGA output for attaching traditional televisions, projectors and monitors. The VGA output makes this 5 Bay NAS Server convenient for displaying presentation or media files when HDMI is not available. Additionally you can attach speakers directly to the N5550 NAS to play audio files. Manage media and audio files by simply attaching the speaker plug to the audio out. These features help to lower the total cost of ownership for your network architecture.

Data Burn
With Data Burn, NAS data can be burned directly to CD, DVD and Blu-ray discs. This hassle-free module makes burning data to a disk effortless. Additionally, burning ISO image file is also supported. Data Burn copies information fast as well as reduces waiting time when you are managing audio, media or essential files.
Antivirus
Thecus's innovative hardware helps prevent failures. Adding an antivirus to the already comprehensive software bundle will provide the necessary software protection by scanning the files on your NAS and defending it against possible threats. Thecus allows users the benefit of McAfee's powerful software on their NAS entirely for free.
Cloud Backup
The private and public clouds meet with Thecus's new DropBox and ElephantDrive cloud backup functionality. You can guard your data with RAID at home and an additional level of protection in the Cloud. Drag and drop files into the folder on your NAS and access them on any computer or mobile device with DropBox or ElephantDrive.
HDMI Output
This makes your NAS Server the ultimate multimedia hub by allowing you to connect your NAS directly to your TV for device management, web browsing with Flash support and even HD video playback.
USB 3.0 Connectivity
The USB 3.0 connectivity provides 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 at up to 5 Gbps. The NAS Server's backwards compatibility adds 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.
Multiple RAID
The Thecus NAS is versatile. It creates a balance of performance and data protection for multiple RAID volumes each supporting different RAID modes including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 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 can 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 get the best of each one.
iSCSI Thin-Provisioning
You can get fast data transfer with the high speed iSCSI and make wasted disk space a thing of the past with thin provisioning's flexible storage functionality.
iOS/Android Connectivity
The ThecusShare and the Thecus Dashboard helps to manage your NAS Server, upload and download or stream data using an iOS or Android device on the go. This facilitates access to your data from anywhere.
Rsync
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 this server among multiple users. User quotas make storage easy to divvy up and manage disk space, for two or even up to 100 users.
