With CES out of the way, Thecus Technology has announced some of their plans for the upcomming CeBIT in Hannover. First up are their new N7700 and N8800 NAS servers. The N7700 houses 7 SATA drives for massive storage and can be stacked with an additional five N7700's. If you have room for the NAS in the rack, the N8800 comes in a 2U form factor and ups the ante a bit with an eigth drive. Both support iSCSI making it easy to centrally manage and deploy storage for an entire network.
Thecus will also have several new units on display. First up is the N5500. This 5-bay NAS is a follow up to the N5200PRO and comes with an Intel Celeron processor and 1GB of DDR2. It also supports iSCSI and multiple file systems including XFS, Ext3, and ZFS. Home users will get the new N0204. It has two drive bays for RAID 0/1/JBOD support and also functions as an iTunes, media, and photo server. Rounding off their full range of NAS units will be the multimedia-friendly M3800 and N3200PRO. The M3800 is a revamped N4100PRO and the N3200 is powered by the AMD Geode.
"As the demand for storage capacity continues to grow, businesses are requiring greater integration of storage into their environments," said Seth Bobroff, general manager, Intel Server Platforms Group - Storage. "Using IntelŪ architecture allows Thecus to deliver the performance, features, expandability and reliability to satisfy these increasing customer requirements."
"This year's CeBIT is going to be sensational as ThecusŪ kicks off the New Year with some of our most exciting products,"
said ThecusŪ General Manager Florence Shih. "I look forward to meeting some of our most valued partners as well as some ThecusŪ fans at CeBIT 2009. See you at the show!"
