One file, another file, and then sooner or later you discover that there is no more storage space left on your hard drive. And all the files you’ve got there seem to be important: none can go to the recycle bin. You could probably burn a few discs to free up some space, but it is so time consuming! Besides, other family members using the computer need to be able to access all that data anytime they need… What shall you do?
Well, there are a few smart people in this world who have invented a couple of solutions to this problem. Every month there are more and more new devices for convenient and reliable data storage that come out into the market. Of course, some experienced computer users can put together a backup machine from the spare parts they have left after the latest upgrade, and turn it into a data server. However, they will have to face some annoying issues right away, such as slow performance, access rights and others. Of course, you can handle all that, too, but how much time will you invest into inventing the wheel once again? And how many users would rather do something more exciting than dealing with all the ins and outs of the network data storage peculiarities?
The help was close this time and came from the Thecus Company founded in 2004 in Taiwan. They dedicate their time and knowledge to only one thing: designing database servers. And their latest models can be regarded as a “Lego” for computer users: you don’t really need to dig into all the technical details: just add up more hard drives and forget about all your problems.
Our today’s article is devoted to one of these magic boxes: Thecus YES N2100 Box.
