Thecus Announce Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials

NAS producer Thecus (and surprisingly not Microsoft) has announced a NAS sporting the unknown until now, Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials.

“The Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials software allows small businesses to protect, centralize, organize, and access their data anywhere by using almost any device,” said Peter Han, Vice President of Worldwide OEM Marketing, Microsoft. “We believe offering our software on Thecus NAS devices will provide an excellent solution for those small businesses looking to protect their data while optimizing their resources with a hybrid, on premise, and cloud-connected offering.”

Looking like a cut down version of WS2012 R2 Essentials for the NAS market, Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials will be available from Thecus in a 2-bay W2000, a 4-bay W4000, and a 5-bay W5000.

These will be the world’s first NAS running Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials and will be available from this October, when we should have more hardware info including pricing.
