Your iDEAL Home NAS

Storage leader Thecus® Technology has been making technology accessible to as many people as possible through smart design and friendly features. Beginning with the classic N2100, Thecus® has made it possible for NAS technology to find its way into the mainstream. Today, Thecus® is pleased to introduce the N2200 NAS Server, our friendliest, most affordable two-bay NAS yet.


The N2200 is ideal for storing your entire collection of digital media. With capacity for two 3.5" SATA hard disks, the N2200 can easily accommodate up to 4TB of storage. For added flexibility, the N2200 is equipped with combo disk bays, which means it can also accommodate 2.5" SATA hard disks! To keep your data safe, the N2200 also offers several RAID modes including RAID 0, 1 and JBOD. If you need to change out your hard disks, the N2200's hot swap, hot plug, and auto-rebuild capabilities make swapping out hard disks a snap. Wondering how your N2200 is doing? Get system status updates at-a-glance with the N2200's easy-to-read LCD, which displays intuitive icons to show you system information including hard drive access, LAN connectivity, and USB copy status. And because high tech shouldn't mean high difficulty, the N2200 even comes with a handy Thecus® Smart Utility that not only backs up your files, but also allows you to install the N2200 with a single click! Managing your own NAS server just doesn't get easier than this.


But the N2200 is a lot more than mere storage - it also comes with a bevy of friendly features to make it the center of your digital lifestyle. Included with the N2200 is an upgraded Download Manager, which not only supports HTTP and FTP downloads, but also BitTorrent and eMule as well! New to the N2200 is dual cam support, which enables you to connect both IP cams and USB webcams to it to assemble your very own simple surveillance server. In addition to this, the N2200 comes with full multimedia support, with an iTunes server, Photo Web Server, and even media streaming via uPNP, making it a wonderful addition to the living room. The N2200 is also very energy efficient, consuming considerably less power than a full on PC, and operates super-silently so you won't even know it's there. Best of all, the N2200 brings all of these great features in a very affordable package.


"The N2200 breaks new ground in the two-bay value NAS segment with its terrific features and ease-of-use," said Thecus® General Manager Florence Shih."This is a great unit for first-time users to experience the fun and convenience of Thecus® NAS technology."


Status At-a-Glance

How is your NAS doing today? With its colorful liquid crystal display, you can monitor your N2200 at all times simply by looking at the intuitive status icons.

Easy to Set Up, Easy to Use

Network Attached Storage (NAS) is an IP storage device connected to a computer network. The advantages of Thecus® NAS are to provide data storage management with protection and file sharing functions to other devices across the network. NAS offers other diverse applications and features. High tech shouldn't mean high difficulty. The N2200 can be set up and installed in a snap and even features Thecus' brand-new AJAX-based web interface for complete ease-of-use. One-click USB copy button allows effortless and instant file transfer from external USB disk to N2200.

Enterprise-Class Data Protection At Home

With RAID 0, 1, and JBOD, you can choose the level of speed and protection you want from the N2200. And with auto-rebuild and hot swapping, changing hard disks couldn't be easier. To backup your data, Thecus' backup utility and Nsync remote replication are also included.

Rich and Friendly Multimedia Features

Designed for home use, the N2200 packs some useful features under the hood, including an iTunes server, a photo web server, and a media server (DLNA/uPnP compatiable). Sony's Playstation 3TM and other DLNA certified digital media players can automatically discover and stream content instantly from the N2200. The most praised download manager (with http, FTP, BT, and eMule download features) on the N2200 brings low power and stable downloading instead of using regular PC. You can even use the N2200 as a simple surveillance server by plugging in a compatible USB web cam or IP cam!

Quietly Saving Money

As low as 11w, leaving it on 24/7 does not cost much at all. A perfect replacement for PC right at home. Its intelligent power-saving design means lower overall operating costs. Saving money and green storage server for the planet. What's more, with system fan that automatically spins down when the system is idle, the N2200 is a quiet worker. It is so silent that you won't notice its presence.
