Thecus N16000 16 Bay Enterprise Storage Center
Long before the 3U rackmount N16000, Thecus was already the leader in household and SMB storage solutions, with products across the board that have consistently won awards for performance, quality, and stability. With an advanced UI, built generation by generation with steady improvements in functionality and ease of use, the natural next step was to go big.
The N16000 sticks with Thecus’s proud tradition of industry leading performance set by products such as the N4200 and the N7700PRO. Employing top-of-the-line hardware to bring unprecedented speed to support major data operations, whether it be huge database processing for your company or supporting hundreds of employees data needs. The N16000’s Intel® Xeon® X3480 Quad-Core processor clocked at 3.06GHz is one of the most impressive server processors on the market today, powering only the highest-end electronics. To utilize this advanced hardware to its full extent, we’ve implemented a 64-bit operating system to make sure you get all the power that this machine is capable of. It also supports the next generation of hard drives with 6G SATA/SAS technology, so the fastest disks will always be at your disposal. All of this performance is for dealing with up to 48 Terabytes of data capacity across 16 disks, more than enough for the demands of even the largest businesses.
As an enterprise-class NAS, the N16000 needs to be on line and accessible at all times. High Availability (HA) is the most sophisticated system for keeping your data safe and within reach at all times. By running two parallel NAS, HA allows constant synchronization between the two. RAID can protect you from losing data, but HA protects you from even a momentary loss of access. The value of HA really becomes apparent when disaster strikes and one NAS experiences a problem; all traffic is channeled to the second NAS with no break in service or data loss whatsoever. From there it is a simple matter of hot-swapping out the damaged disks and letting your Thecus NAS automatically rebuild its RAID partitions; before you know it, you’re back under the protective wing of HA. The N16000’s advanced, yet incredibly simple, data protection system takes advantage of all the latest developments to keep your data on hand at all times. With this kind of power and safety, the N16000 looks to raise the bar and set a new industry standard for enterprise-class NAS.
