CloudBacko Pro running on Thecus W5810 Windows based NAS, works like a charm!

CloudBacko Pro running on Thecus W5810 Windows based NAS, works like a charm

Just tested running CloudBacko Pro on this Windows based Thecus W5810 NAS with satisfactory result. Successfully backed up 20 Office 365 mailboxes (each with 10000 mail items) from the cloud to this NAS.

The good thing for using this NAS with CloudBacko is that you don’t need to spare a machine for running CloudBacko software. And this NAS can take 5 x 12TB HDDs. After RAID-5, you’ll have 50TB usable storage for storing your backup data. Good enough for most small and medium businesses.

Currently the price for 12TB HDD might be a bit expensive, but using 10TB HDD is also a good option. After putting 5 x 10TB HDDs into this NAS, the total cost will be around US$2000 to US$2500. Pretty affordable for such storage size.

When using it with CloudBacko and the needed add-on modules (Exchange, SQL, VMware, Hyper-V, MySQL, Windows System, etc.), you’ll have a robust backup solution for backing up all your data locally, and to the cloud.

With our Office 365 and Cloud File modules, you can also backup the cloud data to this NAS, and to other cloud storages.

Pretty good, right?! Check this NAS out from your local Thecus dealer now! If you’re from Hong Kong or Macau, you can directly contact us for getting this Thecus :-)
