Thecus N4100 Brings Storage Space To Your LAN

RAID Configuration

Before the available storage capacity can be shared across the network in the form of folders, the hard drives must first be configured. The device supports RAID levels 0, 1 and 5 as well as JBOD (just a bunch of disks) - this last option simply strings the attached drives together and presents them as one large volume. However, be aware that neither RAID 0 nor JBOD offers any data security!

Unfortunately, the N4100 lacks options to create RAID 0+1 or 1+0 arrays. While these configurations have to sacrifice more of the available storage space to provide data security, they are also a good deal faster than a RAID 5 configuration.


The creation of a RAID 5 array took just over an hour on our review unit.


The interface also displays additional information on the completed RAID array.
