            Compatibility Notes WD Sentinel RX4100 includes the hardware and software needed to centralize your business files. Once it’s set up, administration is easy because it intelligently manages drive and network status, reducing maintenance time so you can focus on your business.

            WD Sentinel RX4100 is a highly affordable and reliable integrated Network Attached Storage, iSCSI SAN and backup server in a 1U rack mount enclosure, thus reducing hardware requirements and providing lower cost of ownership for small to medium-sized businesses.

            WD Sentinel includes Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials software, providing enterprise-class data protection for up to 25 client computers in your network. There's no need to purchase additional backup software licenses.

            The easy setup process allows you to integrate WD Sentinel RX4100 into your office network like a pro. The administration dashboard quickly guides you through the process including adding users, setting up data access, creating shared folders and scheduling backups.

            WD Sentinel RX4100 is the ideal rack mount storage server for small businesses. Its easy administration features include four drive bays with hot swappable design; redundant user-serviceable power supplies; user-serviceable fans and email alerts. In the event that an IT professional's assistance is needed, the WD Sentinel RX4100 allows them to manage the server remotely. Now that's easy.

            WD Sentinel RX4100 offers built-in iSCSI target functionality integrated within the Dashboard to easily manage the setup, administration and deployment of iSCSI SAN Storage. IT Pros and advanced users have the ability to partition their WD Sentinel RX4100 for both NAS File-based storage as well as iSCSI-SAN with the iSCSI Target solution powered by StarWind. This capability enables the administrator to create multiple iSCSI targets to meet the specific needs of their dynamic IT environments.

            Receive critical system updates via the built-in email alerts functionality or view real-time updates for the system and network status through
            WD Sentinel's Dashboard. The Dashboard includes easy-to-use task wizards that allow you to perform administrative tasks such as creating and managing user accounts, setting backup schedules and access privileges to shared folders, and monitoring the WD Sentinel's system health and alerts. The Dashboard's "Health" tab allows you to monitor the status of the storage drives, RAID configuration and power supplies, as well as temperatures, fans, CPU and network connections.

            The included backup software saves time and space by performing a full Bare Metal Backup the first time and then automatically backing up only the data that has changed since the previous backup, using block-level deduplication technology. In the event of a data loss or a drive failure on a client computer, the WD Sentinel RX4100's fast and easy restore function finds your files or lets you restore an entire system to get you up and running again quickly.

            WD Sentinel RX4100 is perfect for businesses with employees working remotely or in home offices. You have the security of knowing all your business files are safely stored on your WD Sentinel RX4100 small business storage server. With built-in secure remote access, remote employees with access permissions can securely access business data from any computer with an Internet connection.

            WD Sentinel RX4100 supports Apple Filing Protocol (AFP), which provides complete compatibility for Mac OS-based client machines. Discover WD Sentinel RX4100 automatically using Bonjour, seamlessly back up your Mac OS clients using Apple's Time Machine backup utility, enjoy faster data transfer over Ethernet using AFP, and manage your WD Sentinel RX4100 server using the Administration Dashboard application for Mac.
