THECUS N4100 PRO INTRODUCTION
A NAS is no doubt an attractive solution for networks in both the SOHO and SMB market. Not only does it offer file storage and data redundancy, but there are many additional functions a NAS offers to make life easier for a network administrator. Things like sharing out a USB printer, setting up an FTP server, and configuring access control lists make operations both convenient and secure, something that is essential for today's networks.
Thecus is a manufacturer of network storage equipment and they focus on ease of use and installation of their products. My previous review sample from them, the N3200, proved to be an excellent home NAS that was a breeze to set up and maintain. Their latest offering, the N4100 Pro, is designed for small business use and adds an additional hard drive bay and upgraded hardware specs. Of course, it can be used for a home network as well, so home and business users alike are welcome to join me in checking out this product.
