We have talked about the Thecus line of NAS devices before. The company offers models aimed at consumers and versions that are designed for rack mounting aimed at businesses like the 1U4600 I mentioned last month. Thecus has announced a new NAS device called the N4200 with 6D technology.
The NAS device uses 1GB of RAM and an Intel D510 dual-core processor at 1.66GHz. Thecus uses its dual DOM technology offering two copies of the software needed to operate the NAS device inside the unit in case one gets corrupted. Two displays are on the unit to monitor the machine with one LCD showing system info and a 2.8-inch OLED screen showing settings of the device like WAN, LAN, and more.
Thecus also uses a battery backup module inside the NAS device that allows data to finish writing to the drives inside in the event power goes out during a write or firmware update. The design of the drive bays allows for use of 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives and the system can be configured with two RAID modes at once.
