Long before the 3U rackmount N16000, Thecus was already the leader in household and SMB storage solutions, with products across the board that have consistently won awards for performance, quality, and stability. With an advanced UI, built generation by generation with steady improvements in functionality and ease of use, the natural next step was to go big. 'Thecus is getting into the enterprise NAS market in a big way,' said Florence, General Manager of Thecus Technology. 'Our large enterprise NAS are on the cutting edge of storage technology and offer the power and advanced security features that Thecus customers have come to expect.' The N16000 sticks with Thecus's proud tradition of industry leading performance set by products such as the N4200 and the N7700PRO. Employing top-of-the-line hardware to bring unprecedented speed to support major data operations, whether it be huge database processing for your company or supporting hundreds of employees data needs. The N16000's Intel Xeon X3480 Quad-Core processor clocked at 3.06GHz is one of the most impressive server processors on the market today, powering only the highest-end electronics. To utilize this advanced hardware to its full extent, we've implemented a 64-bit operating system to make sure you get all the power that this machine is capable of. It also supports the next generation of hard drives with 6G SATA/SAS technology, so the fastest disks will always be at your disposal. All of this performance is for dealing with up to 48 Terabytes of data capacity across 16 disks, more than enough for the demands of even the largest businesses.
