Small and medium businesses face an ever increasing need for storage consolidation, document sharing and data backup. D-Link's DNS-1250-04 ShareCenter Pro 1250 Network Storage Device addresses these requirements, and provides a multitude of advanced options for managing and securing important files. Setup and configuration of the DNS-1250-04 can be completed in a matter of minutes with simple and easy to use One Click Setup and intuitive Web Based Interfaces. The DNS-1250-04 is a unified solution that provides iSCSI and NAS functionalities including MPIO and LUN-masking. It boasts strong iSCSI write performance greater than many competing products. It also provides versatile RAID support. It features four Serial ATA (SATA) disk drive bays and supports volumes in RAID level 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, JBOD and Standard mode configurations. Additionally, S.M.A.R.T. disk diagnostics help to ensure data integrity through monitoring of the hard drives. Any hard drive problems detected can be dealt with by Predictive Data Migration (PDM) which moves data from an affected drive to a healthy drive to ensure no loss of data.
Small Businesses will appreciate the DNS-1250-04 NAS file server which takes advantage of the accelerated performance of the Intel Atom Dual-Core processor. Providing up to 9000 MIPS of computing power and 2GB of cache memory, the DNS-1250-04 is able to provide the performance required for your business and its future growth with throughput up to 210MB/s in iSCSI applications. The DNS-1250-04 offers a comprehensive range of backup options which allow administrators and users to control how, when and where their data is stored. Use the USB ports to back up folders from NAS to a flash drive. Users can also take a volume snapshot, back up to Cloud storage, or remotely back up to a server by using an rsync backup utility. Many third-party backup solutions like Acronis Backup & Recovery are also supported.
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 (DAS). 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 Fibre-Channel alternative. Plus, USB connectivity provides the option to connect a printer to the DNS-1250-04 and utilize it as a print server, or to connect devices such as hard drives and flash storage to share on your network. The user interface is clean, intuitive, and professional, which dramatically increases usability. Information and functions are easily seen and found in a clear interface which users will be able to manage without requiring special IT knowledge.
