Thecus is pleased to announce the expansion on the company's SMB and Enterprise NAS line with the 10GbE Ready N7710 and N8810U. These new models offer identical hardware and performance to the recently released N7710-G and N8810U-G, differing only in stock support for 10GbE connectivity.
These models offer excellent value for companies who do not currently have the need or infrastructure for 10GbE speeds, and are looking for powerful performance and an attractive architecture. Both units are fully upgradable if a company decides to make the jump to 10GbE down the line.
Power and Connectivity
Under the hood of each is an Intel® Pentium® G850 Dual Core 2.9GHz processor and 4GB of DDR3 ECC RAM, expandable up to 32GB. Both models also benefit from the balanced strengths of RAID 50, while the N8810U offers the enhanced reliability of RAID 60as well.
Along with two multimedia ports – HDMI and VGA, these versatile units have two USB 3.0, six USB 2.0, and two single gigabit Ethernet ports.
Compatible with the Latest Technologies
The N7710 and N8810U boast VMware ESXi V5.5 iSCSI certification, ensuring compatibility with the latest virtualization technologies. They also come bundled with free Acronis True Image and McAfee Antivirus software, helping users easily back up and safeguard their data.
Storagetimes have done a review on thre epopular NAS drives from HGST (formerly Hitachi), Western Digital (RED Drives) and Seagate
Its early days for HGST Deskstar NAS drives, WD RED Drives has historically shown tremendous reliability and Seagate are still in the proving mode. We have no doubt HGST NAS drives will come through the reliability tests in time as it’s shown historically with its desktop and enterprise model drives, to become one the NAS drive of choice for NAS servers in any class. Performance for the HGST 4TB NAS was stellar and coupled with an impressive list of features and specification we have little or no hesitation in awarding our 2014 editors choice to the HGST Deskstar NAS drives. Well Done Team HGST!
