The cost-effective D-Link ShareCenter Pro 1100 4-Bay NAS / iSCSI Unified Network Storage is ideal for small businesses looking to back up and share files over a network or provision additional storage capacity for a dedicated host machine. With concurrent NAS and iSCSI support, the DNS-1100-04 provides a multitude of advanced options for storage consolidation, document sharing, data backup, managing and securing important files.
NAS File Server
Small businesses will appreciate the DNS-1100-04 NAS file server which takes advantage of the accelerated performance of the dual-core CPU. Providing up to 7200 MIPS of computing power and 512MB of cache memory, the DNS-1100-04 is able to provide the performance required for your business and its future growth.
Virtual Disk Drive Expansion
Virtual disk drive expansion allows the ShareCenter Pro 1100 to attach up to eight external iSCSI storage targets found on the local network and use them as virtual disks for additional storage volumes.
A Variety of Backup Options
The DNS-1100-04 offers several backup options which allow administrators and users to control how, when and where their data is stored. Share files across the network or over the Internet via FTP or access them via the easy-to-use Web File Manager which provides password authenticated access to files stored on the NAS.
iSCSI for IP Networks
iSCSI offers fast access performance thanks to block level data transfer. iSCSI targets appear as a local drive on a client PC or host server. Operations such as configuration, provisioning and backup can be handled by the administrator in the same way they would be for direct-attached storage. By utilizing existing Ethernet technology, the cost associated with separate host bus adapters and the per-Gigabyte cost for storage can be significantly reduced when compared versus the Fiber Channel alternative.
Account management features include the ability to manage users and groups and their read/write permissions, create users, groups and iSCSI targets with password authentication. Additionally, VLAN tagging support combined with AES encryption keeps files secure. The DNS-1100-04 implements CHAP authentication, system firewall and IP blocking to guarantee secure access to the storage system.
Share Printers and USB Storage
USB connectivity provides the option to use the DNS-1100-04 as a print server, for UPS monitoring or to connect USB devices such as hard drives and flash storage.
RAID for Efficiency and Redundancy
The DNS-1100-04 features four SATA disk drive bays supporting 3TB hard drives in RAID level 0, 1, 5, 6, JBOD or standard mode configurations. Administrators can quickly deploy a network storage solution using inexpensive SATA disk drives. Additionally, S.M.A.R.T. disk diagnostics help to ensure data integrity by anticipating failures and repairing sector errors.
Green Features Save Energy
Green Ethernet provides significant energy savings by reducing power according to cable length or cutting power to unused ports. Small businesses looking for a central storage location for file sharing or backing up data will appreciate the cost savings provided by the ShareCenter Pro 1100.
