Thecus NAS solutions now compatible with Seagate 5TB HDD

5TB drives allow Thecus to achieve up to 80TB of raw capacity in one appliance

Thecus, a manufacturer of network attached storage devices, announced that its entire line of NAS solutions are now compatible with Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5" 5TB HDD. These drives now give Thecus the ability to have 80TB of raw capacity in just one of its N16000PRO high availability NAS appliances. Based on current street prices from a variety of online stores, this puts the total solution well below the $200 per terabyte threshold.

Thecus is better known in the prosumer market, but is clearly making an effort to gain the attention of smaller enterprise IT shops with these capacities. According to Florence Shih, Chairperson at Thecus Technology Corp, this is exactly why they have partnered with Seagate,"Seagate's reliability paired with Thecus's trusted technology is an undeniable edge for enterprises in need of large pools of data in energy-efficient, high-performance storage." The combination of high capacity and the ability to connect via 10GbE make the Thecus NAS appliances a viable candidate for outlying departmental needs at a minimum.
