Around the turn of the new millennium, with years of successful experience in the personal computing industry and a family of renowned engineers at her side, Florence Shih (now considered one of the figureheads of Taiwan’s IT revolution) set out to break new ground in the blossoming field of network attached storage. And thus began, almost exactly a decade ago, the story of one of the storage world’s most innovative players: Thecus Technology Corp.
Unveiling their new line at CeBIT 2005 in Hannover, Germany, Thecus first showed off the 4-bay N4100 (or “sexy little black box” as Hexus referred to it in their review). Since then, Thecus has maintained a track record of unbroken innovation, with each year bringing another first to the world’s stage:
2005 SATA NAS and DAS with eSATA support
2006 5-Bay NAS
2007 Home NAS with RAID 5
2008 NAS with AV-Output
2009 NAS with dual 3.5” and 2.5” drive support
2010 10GbE compatible SMB NAS
2011 NAS with 10GBASE-T support
2012 Home NAS with HDMI / NAS with McAfee Antivirus
2013 Intel Atom SoC CE5315 embedded NAS
2014 Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials NAS
With the changing times and unstoppable progress of technology, Thecus has stayed one step ahead of the curve all the while remaining true to its vision of being the ‘Creator in Storage’. And in the spirit of innovation, Thecus is reenergizing itself with the adoption of a new slogan highlighting their particular expertise in the commercial landscape. Thus, with another 10 years of breakthroughs and storage solutions to look forward to, Thecus is ready to empower the professional in you!
