Thecus® Windows Server 2008 R2 Certificated
02/09/2012- The Thecus NAS are used within various environments. For the high-end rackmount segment, it is critical to ensure the highest degree of compatibility; especially in virtualized environments. Windows Server R2 is one of the most widely used server operating systems and is the first 64-bit-only OS from Microsoft: it’s been designed for intensive usage. That’s why Thecus and its high-end family are an ideal complement for Windows Server.
The current certified models are the N8900/N12000/N16000 and their V series counterparts.
While Work with Windows® Server 2008 R2 is a stepping stone towards achievement, Certified for Windows Server 2008 R2 is much more difficult to obtain. “Designed for line-of-business and mission-critical applications, the Certified for Windows Server 2008 R2 logo demonstrates that your solution meets Microsoft's highest technical bar for stability, security, reliability, availability, Windows fundamentals, and platform compatibility.”
Basically, this means that the certified Thecus NAS will run smoothly with any Windows Server R2 and Virtual Machine from Hyper-V. Also, it once again reassures the quality of Thecus NAS, as the certification process and only a few candidates pass it.
“The simultaneous Windows certification as well as the release of the Windows servers, the W Series, is the start to a very fruitful relationship to achieve our main goal: to satisfy more and more Thecus users with high-quality network appliances,” says Florence Shih, General Manager of Thecus Technology.
