I’m not sure why but it seems that you never can have too much space in your NAS. Seagate is coming out with a 5 TB drive, the Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5” 5TB HDD, and today Thecus is confirming that their NAS-units will be able to handle these new huge drives. We are sure that more companies will confirm compatibility soon.
April 29, 2014, Milpitas California – Network attached storage expertThecus is pleased to announce that the Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5” 5TB HDD is confirmed compatible with the entire Thecus NAS line. Early hands-on access to these high-capacity HDDs was made possible through Thecus’s continued close relationship with Seagate.
With their 5TB breakthrough, Seagate Enterprise Capacity drives are among the highest-capacity drives available for enterprise-class purposes. And with enhanced efficiency thanks to PowerChoice™ host-selectable power options and robust performance coming from dual processors and ramp load technologies, the 35% average sustained increase of throughput over previous generations is almost palpable.
“Reaching the milestone of 5TB hard drive capacity is tremendous news for the storage industry,” said Florence Shih, Chairperson at Thecus Technology Corp. “Seagate’s reliability paired with Thecus’s trusted technology is an undeniable edge for enterprises in need of large pools of data in energy-efficient, high-performance storage.”
