08/21/2017- Thecus NAS that operate on the latest version of ThecusOS 7.0 allow for extra security with Seagate IronWolf Health Management (IHM). When Seagate IronWolf class HDDs are incorporated into a Thecus NAS, this health management system allows for a comprehensive diagnostic analysis of drive health and security of your data. IHM delivers three key capabilities — prevention, intervention and recovery.
Accessed in ThecusOS 7.0, this diagnostic tool collects information of certain critical items concerning the hard drives, analysis of this is then utilized to recommend preventative action users can take to avoid having issues arise, helping to ensure performance, longevity and data protection.
By monitoring hundreds of parameters, signs of possible data loss can be quickly detected, when this occurs it will send a recommendation to back up to prevent critical loss. However when disaster does strike, such as a flood, fire or accidental damage, data rescue can occur with no delay. Seagate’s in-house data recovery services enjoy a 90% recovery rate. Rescue is complimentary for two years on IronWolf Pro drives, and can be added as an option on IronWolf drives.
How to access IHM
Simply navigate through the following. [CONTROL PANEL] -> [DISK & RAID] -> [DISK] -> Choose a HDD which supports the IHM function -> [IHM].
The IHM [IronWolf Health Management] window will appear. Here you can scan the selected HHD, upon completion of the scan, the results will be shown either as “healthy” or a numerical output code that will highlight a concern. These concerns may include abnormally high operating temperature, excessive vibration or host resets. Each notification will provide a suggested course of action.
The IronWolf and IronWolf Pro are available today. The IronWolf series is available in 10TB, 8TB, 7TB, 6TB, 4TB, 3TB, 2TB, and 1TB. For specific compatibility with Thecus NAS, please go to www.thecus.com
