Subject: Storage | May 30, 2008 - 06:00 AM | Ryan Shrout
Computex Taipei, Asia's largest
technology show, will be held from June 3rd to 7th.
Boasting nearly 3,000 exhibitors, over 130,000 visitors will get
the chance to see the latest and greatest tech gear first hand. Now in its 28thyear, Computex will double in size with the addition of the Nangang Exhibition
Hall. Thecus Technology will be there to show off the very latest in
digital storage, including its new N8800, N7700,
N4100PRO, M3800, i5500, and i4500storage solutions, as well as the exciting new Thecus miniPC.
For those with greater storage needs, the
all-new Thecus N8800 and N7700 have you covered. Equipped with a
powerful Intel® Celeron M 2.0 GHz CPU and a full GB of DDR2 memory,
both N8800 and N7700 are capable of handling a multitude of file serving tasks
quickly and effectively. Users can access data via iSCSI, and for even more
storage, N8800 and N7700 are also stackable, which means that two N7700s (or
N8800s) can work in tandem, doubling the potential storage capacity. For
business users, the N8800 and N7700 are the ultimate NAS solutions, and it will
make its debut at this year's Computex.
The N8800 features eight hot-swappable
hard disk trays that accept standard 3.5”SATAII hard disks for up to 8 terabytes of storage. Multiple RAID modes
including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60, and JBOD allows
administrators to choose the mode that best fits the enterprise’s computing environment.
N7700 features seven SATA bays for up to 7
terabytes of storage. To handle all of that capacity, users can select from a
wide variety of RAID modes including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60 and JBOD,
and can even have multiple RAID modes operating simultaneously.
Home entertainment buffs will love the new Thecus
M3800. Featuring HDMI, component, and AV out, the M3800 can play digital
content directly through your existing home theater system. The M3800 supports
multiple file formats, and even supports 1080P for playback on today's
high-definition displays. What's more, with the included remote control, you
can enjoy movies, music, photos and more from the comfort of your living room
couch. Equipped with three 3.5" SATA bays, the M3800 brings the security
of RAID 5 home, making it a total media playback and secure storage solution.
Also coming to the show will be the N4100PRO.
A revamp of the classic N4100, the N4100PRO brings blazing performance to the
four-bay NAS space. Fitted with an AMD Geode LX800 CPU and 256MB of DDR memory, the N4100PRO leaves the
competition in the dust with nearly double the data throughput performance of
the original N4100! Users can choose from RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 and JBOD, and can
even take advantage of RAID expansion and RAID level migration should the need
But that's not all. Also making a debut at
Computex 2008 is the i5500 iSCSI RAID System. Featuring five SATA II
bays and multiple RAID modes including RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5 6, 10, and JBOD,
the i5500 delivers the performance and security demanded by today's
data-centric businesses. For those looking for a rackmount solution, the i4500,
also making a debut at Computex 2008, will fit the bill nicely. Finally, Thecus
will be introducing the Thecus miniPC, a tiny, fully-functional PC that
delivers a robust computing
experience in an extremely small casing.
Of course, showgoers can also
check out the N5200PRO, the world's number one selling 5-bay NAS, as well as
the innovative and compact 1U4500 rackmount NAS. All of these will be on
display at this year's Computex exhibition.
