Thecus has introduced its newest NAS units, the N7710-G and N8810U-G for SMB and enterprise users. These latest additions to the Thecus line offer improvements in performance thanks to Intel Pentium G850 Dual Core CPUs and 10GbE technology. 10GbE networking presents speeds up to 10x faster than regular gigabit connections.

Along with the 75% faster processor, newly incorporated multimedia ports (HDMI and VGA), and the inclusion of USB 3.0 ports, the new 7-bay N7710-G and 8-bay N8810U-G also includes the Thecus App Center. Both units allow multiple users to use the growing list of over 90 official and third party applications.

RAID Flexibility
With RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and JBOD available, users can choose their balance between performance and redundancy. Both new products benefit from the strengths of RAID 50, while the N8810U-G also offers RAID 60.

Resource Optimization
The User Quota feature and iSCSI Thin Provisioning ensure that storage resources are shared efficiently. Both new NAS products also have VMware V5.5 certification, for compatibility with the latest virtualization technologies.

Data Security
With Acronis True Image, data can be backed up to local and remote media easily and automatically. Data Guard provides another option for local and remote backup to other NAS, and Data Burn offers permanent backup to CD, DVD, and Blu-Ray discs. Meanwhile, McAfee Antivirus keeps watch to safeguard all data passing through the NAS, and Thecus's AES 256-bit RAID volume encryption protects data from theft. To ensure that data is transmitted and stored corruption-free, both units use ECC RAM.

The N7710-G and N8810U-G will be available at selected retail stores and distributors in mid-March for the suggested retail prices of $1,199 and $1,999 respectively.
