SOFTWARE

Like many other NAS solutions, the N7710-G runs a modified version of Linux with a user interface similar to what you would find on a router. Basic interactions can conducted via the front control panel and through mobile apps, but the main interface is accessed remotely through a web browser from another system on the network. The N7710-G ships with ThecusOS5. The interface is somewhat barebones and lacking in refinement compared QNAP's QTS. Here is a brief run-down of the some of the available options.


The ThecusOS "home" screen. Individual settings that are bookmarked appear here for convenience.


The system monitor is composed of four windows allowing you to track multiple things at once.


There are a variety of different items that can be monitored: CPU and memory usage, fan speeds, temperatures, network and individual service activity. Interestingly, the N7710-G reports three different system temperatures but no hard drive temperatures.


Notifications can be send to multiple email addresses, but not through SMS.


Disk information.


RAID Management. Multiple arrays can be built in RAID 0/1/5/6/10/50 and JBOD configurations with multiple file systems and with AES 256-bit encryption.


Quotas can be set for individual users, a useful feature for enterprise environments.


Each NIC can act as its own DHCP server.


A wide variety of options are available for each supported network service.


The NAS itself can be backed locally, remotely, or through Amazon's S3 service. Additional cloud storage can be used via third party apps.
