NAS products are equal parts hardware performance and software features. One compliments the other in a balanced product. You need more hardware performance to run more software features at the same time.
As with most NAS appliances, Thecus too has a software "finder" application. This allows quick setup of the NAS to get you off and running in no time.
The finder too is a new design from Thecus, above you can see the software quickly found our NAS and got us setup rather quickly.
The new Thecus OS 6 is still very much a work in progress as you can see above its largely a blank slate apart from the two icons that remain in the desktop area. Above, near the Thecus branding, you will find a small icon that will expand the menu seen in the picture. From within, you have the ability to manage the NAS through several applications.
RAID setup shares a familiar menu that was seen on previous Thecus OS versions. Here we have the options of RAID 0, 1 and JBOD.
If choosing a RAID 0 configuration, Thecus allows you to select the stripe size from 32K to 4096K.
Previous to this review, I have had a number of opportunities to review Thecus products. One of the standout features was the inclusion of the Zeta-byte file system. Here though, Thecus has gone with EXT4, as the standalone option.
