back of Thecus Desktop 5-Bay NAS

  • LAN Network Port / Ethernet Port – Giving your Thecus storage device to both send, receive and manipulate files over the internet. However that is just the tip of the iceberg. Via the connection of devices such as IP camera, mobile apps and other system tools, you can use multi-purpose applications for homes, small business and enterprises uses.
  • USB 3.0 – The newer and faster evolution of Universal Serial Bus, USB 3.0, can transfer data at up to 5Gb per second. Now becoming commonplace, you can transfer data between devices such as external hard-drives and flash storage keys. In more advanced, larger devices you are able to connect peripherals such as mice and keyboards to the enclosure, however we highly recommend contacting the manufacturers website here for more details on connectivity and compatibility
  • USB 2.0 - A common connection in most devices, USB or Universal Serial Bus gives your Thecus the ability to data between devices such as external hard drives and flash storage keys at up to 480Mb per second. In some larger, more advanced enclosures, you are able to connect peripherals such as keyboards and mice to a Storage enclosure, however we recommend contacting the manufacturers website here for more details on compatibility.
  • eSATA – Often refered to as External SATA, eSATA gives you the ability to utilise the 6Gbp/s data transfer speed of SATA in an external port. Often used in larger enclosure for expansion devices (that work together with the main Digital Storage enclosure), eSATA can also be utilised to connect additional external storage drives to maximise or backup your existing storage archive.
  • HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) – Access your Thecus NAS via a visual device, such as a HD TV or Monitor to giving you direct access to your Network Attached Storage device. Useful if your Network Connectivity has dropped and you require access to your files in the absence of a network/Internet connection.

Thecus Desktop 5-Bay NAS N5550 RAID options

  • JBOD- is a cost-effective network storage solution. If you have a lot of temporarily data to store, JBODs are an economical solution. Mind that the data is not critical or you have an effective backup scheme in place. JBOD is either a single or number of disks which are grouped together and presented to the Operating System as a single volume, called 'Spanning'. If you lose a single disk in the JBOD then you possibly will lose data, as the concept of a JBOD does not include not fault tolerance.
  • RAID 0 is ideal for non-critical storage of data that have to be read/written at a high speed, such as on a video editing station or an image retouching. RAID 0 offers great performance, both in read and write operations. All storage capacity is used, there is no overhead.
  • RAID 1 (mirrored drive) is ideal for critical storage, like accounting systems. It is also suitable for small servers in which only two data drives will be used (disc mirroring). It offers excellent read speed and a write-speed that is comparable to that of a single drive. In case a drive fails, data do not have to be rebuild, they just have to be copied to the replacement drive (mirroring hdd ). It can be used as back up mirror.
  • RAID 5 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. It is ideal for file and application servers that have a limited number of data drives. Very fast read data transactions while write data transactions are bit slower. In case if drive fails, you still have access to all data, even while the failed drive is being replaced and system rebuilds the data on the new drive.
  • RAID 6 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. Similar to RAID 5, read data transactions are very fast. Two drives can fail and you still have access to all data, even while the failed drives are being replaced. It makes it more secure.
  • RAID 10 combines pros and cons of RAID 0 and RAID 1 in one single system. If one drive fails, the rebuild time is very fast because data being copied from the surviving mirror to a new drive.
