Powerful Client Utility
Thecus® developed a unique way to access your NAS without the need to go through web browsers. The client utility is better known as “Intelligent NAS,” it’s a utility that is packaged in the N2520 to offer ease of use. This powerful utility will directly be installed on your computer and auto-Samba your NAS, thus automatically gives you access to designated folders.
Have easy access to your NAS via Dynamic DNS (DDNS), this allows users to allocate and access their NAS files via the internet remotely. Since IP digits are often difficult to remember, domain names are utilized to make NAS management much more convenient. When the IP address is changed, the DDNS server will automatically adjust the IP address to make sure that remote access is always available. In short, DDNS provides convenient remote internet access to your Thecus® N2520 by utilizing domain names instead of IP digits.
A new feature that Thecus® has integrated in the N2520 model is the Auto Flashback Photo Gallery. When the user utilizes the client utility, they will be presented with a feature of photos from the past, hence flashback. For example, if the current date is “Feb xx, xxxx,” Auto Flashback Gallery will automatically display photos of the same date but different year. If a photo of that date is absent, other photos will simply take its place.
Data Guard backup solution is the ultimate software as it provides both local and remote parts. Currently, data is backed up across RAID volumes, external USB drives, and eSATA.
