The new XXX line of Thecus NAS is leading the way in catering to your needs. With Xtreme power, Xtreme function, and Xtreme value, these Thecus NAS deliver. Whether it be a strong product for a budget price or a high-powered NAS for the tech-savvy, each model is extremely geared towards fitting you. From an extremely speedy 2-bay for your home office to an extremely powerful 8-bay rackmount for even the most demanding enterprise, Thecus XXX NAS are ready for you.

With the pace of technological improvement accelerating every day, it is essential for products to have staying power. Data capacity and storage needs are expanding quickly and your NAS needs to be able to adjust to your future. The N5200XXX is capable of storing up to 15TB of data, which gives you all the capacity you will need for many years to come. This NAS is perfect for small and medium businesses with increasing data storage needs, as well as private web experts running web services such as FTP sites, web sites, or sharing hubs.

5 bays with 15TB of data capacity can supply businesses with serious data needs, but also provides flexibility for those with less extreme demands. With 5 bays available, it is easy to get started with 2 or 3 disks (that's still 6 or 9TB's of storage!) and add more disks as your needs increase. Libraries grow, files get larger, businesses develop; there are many reasons to allow yourself room to expand in the future. The extra bays can also house inactive spare disks that will automatically be activated as soon as they are needed. People from all walks of life are beginning to realize the value that NAS can give them and flexibility is extremely important.

Having sufficient data capacity and expandability are extremely valuable, but it is equally important to have a NAS with speed that will pass the test of time. The N5200XXX runs the latest generation of Atom processors, the Intel Atom D525, and has a formidable 1GB of DDR3 memory. This makes it powerful enough to host hundreds of users, perform massive uploading and downloading operations with great speed, and run many functions simultaneously. The N5200XXX is a great solution for anyone in search of a long-term solution with expanding data needs.
