Excerpt: Thecus has made quite a name for itself when it comes to entry to mid-range NAS devices, its become something of a household name all over the world in this fairly new and growing market. A NAS or Network Attached Storage device is something that's very common in one way or another for businesses to use, although some might use a file server instead. However, the home and SOHO market has really taken to NAS appliances as an affordable backup and storage solution.
