Thecus N12000PRO 2U Rackmount 12-Bay NAS Server is equipped with the Xeon E3-1275 processor that runs at 3.4 GHz. The quad-core processor is matched by 8GB of DDR3 RAM on both devices to make sure that the biggest commands fly through without a hitch. And to make sure the full power of the processors is used, a 10GbE network card can be added to the available PCI-e slot and link aggregation can be used to make sure your network doesn't slow you down. Brought on by the ThecusOS 5.0, users can now dynamically stack their NAS units for more capacities in a single volume; simply designate your N12000PRO as a stack master and implement a 10GbE switch to connect additional target devices. Scalability is the key notion when it boils down to volume expansion. In fact, an amazing eight target devices can be intertwined for a massive volume of multi TB capacity when utilizing 10GbE switch.

Daisy-chaining is the most innovative function to expand storage volume while keeping cost down. Up to four D16000 DAS can be added to your N16000PRO and N12000PRO for an additional 64 bays of storage. As a result, IT enterprises or consumers who utilize large amounts of storage can obtain massive expansion and save cost. Another perk about daisy-chaining is that transfer speeds are fast! Thanks to the SAS cables that are put-to-use to daisy-chain the DAS to the NAS. If paired with volume expansion, daisy-chain can help large businesses expand their storage capacity to up to 2.5 PB!

The Thecus N12000PRO run on ThecusOSTM 5.0 which supports one of the most important features within the storage industry, High Availability (HA). In short, HA allows users to replicate the data on an active NAS to another standby NAS via 10GbE synchronization. Also supported by the N12000PRO is the total backup solution, Data Guard. This backup solution is the ultimate feature as it provides both local and remote backup under one roof. Currently, data is backed up across RAID volumes, external USB drives and eSATA. In addition, Data Guard uses innovative technology to sync data across the network to other NAS, take advantage of real-time remote replication to keep your data safe. More importantly, Thecus Data Guard is the total backup solution which makes managing NAS user-friendly and convenient.

The Thecus N12000PRO is designed to meet the needs of large businesses with large amount of data and who expect professional performance out of their NAS. With unified storage, the users will have the ability to plug their NAS to an iSCSI network and at the same time, use your Thecus NAS as an IP Storage pool for both protocols. This way, the NAS can be compatible with any existing or future architecture. Now with faster processors, the N12000PRO will deliver quicker response time and handle multitasking with even better ease than before.
