The Thecus N2350 is powered by a dual core Marvell Armada 385 1.0GHz CPU, and equipped with 1GB of resilient DDR4 RAM. DDR4 is the next evolution in DRAM, delivering higher performance through higher speed and more robust control features while improving energy efficiency with a reduction in memory power demand. The modernized hardware makes the N2350 one of the most energy efficient NAS in its class, helping businesses and home users to save energy.
“The N2350 provides all the essential storage services you need from a NAS, at a very attractive price point with an unprecedented level of energy efficiency. This Thecus NAS server can be quickly assimilated into any home and office environment, to delivering greater connectivity to users from day one,” says Florence Shih, General Manager at Thecus Technology Corp.
A transformative difference in relation to its predecessor is the addition of ThecusOS 7.0, Thecus' latest OS. This intuitive and feature-rich OS allows for significant advancements in productivity, flexibility, and performance. Key new features include Photo Center, File Center, and Thecus App Center, with an extensive variety of apps for modern digital lifestyles including the Surveillance Station.
The Thecus N2350 offers complete data backup and protection capabilities: Thin provisioning, replication for disaster recovery, Remote Backup or disaster recovery (for real-time remote or local backup) as well as backup to Amazon S3 cloud service.
The N2350 provides further connectivity with two mobile apps. Thecus Connect™ allows users to gain live access to their NAS unit, enabling them to monitor the most up-to-date information. Orbweb.me™ is a P2P module that allows users to easily view, stream and manage files in their NAS anytime and anywhere. No IP address is required.
The N2350 is purposely designed to meet the essential needs of small office and home users, providing everything they require without any unwanted extras. With an upgrade in processor performance, the next generation DDR4 RAM, and the latest ThecusOS 7 software, the N2350 is a highly attractive option in the two-bay NAS market arena.
When it comes to data management, Thecus NAS truly let you have it your way. Create multiple RAID volumes each supporting different RAID modes including RAID 0, 1 and JBOD for your own balance of performance and data protection. Should a hard drive malfunction occur, changing one is simple thanks to online RAID migration and expansion, hot spare, and auto rebuild.
Have easy access to your NAS via Dynamic DNS (DDNS), this allows users to allocate and access their NAS files via the internet remotely. Since IP digits are often difficult to remember, domain names are utilized to make NAS management much more convenient. When the IP address is changed, the DDNS server will automatically adjust the IP address to make sure that remote access is always available. In short, DDNS provides convenient remote internet access to your Thecus® N2310 by utilizing domain names instead of IP digits.
The private and public clouds meet with Thecus’ new DropBox, Amazon S3 and ElephantDrive cloud backup functionality! Guard your data with RAID at home and an additional level of protection in the Cloud. Just drag and drop files into the folder on your NAS and access them on any computer or mobile device with DropBox, Amazon S3 or ElephantDrive.
Thecus’ innovative hardware helps prevent failures. But sometimes you have to protect the NAS against itself. Adding an antivirus to the already comprehensive software bundle will provide the necessary software protection by scanning the files on your NAS and defending it against possible threats. McAfee is the world’s largest dedicated security technology company and shares Thecus’ spirit of dedication and quality. By establishing a strong partnership with them, Thecus will allow users the benefit of McAfee’s powerful software on their NAS entirely for free.
USB 3.0 Connectivity
The next generation of connectivity is here with speeds 10x faster than USB 2.0. Whether connecting digital cameras and smart phones, backing up large external hard drives, or extending the capacity of your NAS, USB 3.0 will make sure it's done in no time at up to 5 Gbit/s. Backwards compatibility adds the connectivity of a world full of USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 devices to get the best combination of speed and universal access.
Multiple File Systems
Support for multiple file systems including , EXT4 and XFS, gives Thecus NAS flexibility to handle many different types of environments. Users can simultaneously use different file systems across multiple RAID volumes to get the best of each one.
Get the most out of your storage space with the extreme speed of iSCSI and the efficiency of iSCSI thin provisioning. Connect through iSCSI for the fastest data transfer speeds available and make wasted disk space a thing of the past with thin provisioning's flexible storage functionality.
Divide the massive storage of a Thecus NAS among multiple users. Whether there are two users or 100, User Quota make it easy to divvy up and manage disk space.
