It hard to think a simple application like the "finder" app could come such a long way but Thecus has done a remarkable job with the latest revision. Previously, the app was buggy and difficult to use, and now it has undergone a complete redesign and as you can see above lists out all the information on the appliances found on your home network.
ThecusOS 7 has added some much-needed improvements mainly performance and usability. We are using version 3.00.07.4 for our testing.
Setting up the NAS starts off with you choosing the RAID mode you wish to use. I tested RAID 0, 5, and 6 as they are the most commonly used.
Management for the N4810 starts in the settings panel. The power and hardware section allows you to restart or shutdown the appliance along with scheduling reboots, WOL, and UPS functionality.
There is also a more colorful version of the control panel available, seen above.
System information includes version information along with activity monitors for CPU and memory.
You can stop by the service menu to check what services are currently running. Seen above are the defaults for the N4810.
Hardware information includes a basic device manager for the NAS.
Moving over to network settings, you can control host and domain settings along with link agg and QoS.
The monitor watches the CPU, memory, disks, and network, with each having their own graph like the above.
In the privilege menu, you can control users and assign permissions.
Above, we have both the services and backup menu open. As you can see, you have access to everything from SSH, iTunes, SNMP for monitoring, and VPN.
The redesign of the app center saw an influx of new packages for Thecus NAS. Above, we are centered on the recommended solutions.
