Thecus announced VMware 5.5 Certification for five of its Network Attached Storage (NAS) units: N8810U-G, N7710-G, N8900, N12000PRO, and N16000PRO.
With VMware 5.5, Thecus NAS users will have access to more powerful snapshots and cloning, teams functionality for simpler handling of multiple virtual machines, improved networking performance, and support for even more host and guest operating systems.
The NAS units are 10GbE ready, providing speeds up to 10x faster than regular gigabit connections. Plus, the N7710-G supports RAID levels up to 50, while the other four models support RAID 0 to 60 (0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60, and JBOD) for lightning-fast local storage response and rock-solid data durability. Also, the systems offer compatibility with the latest virtualization technologies, including VAAI, and full VMware 5.5 support.
