SMC Intros TigerStore

BARCELONA -- SMC Networks (www.smc.com), a leading provider of LAN hardware and broadband connectivity devices, today announced the first two TigerStore™ SMB NAS Storage Servers in its new line of affordable high-performance storage systems for the SMB and home markets. Designed for versatility, performance, ease of use and true reliability, the new SMCNAS04 has four SATA drive slots to accommodate up to 3TB of storage, while the SMCNAS24 has four 250GB drives built-in for a full terabyte of storage right out of the box. Their high-speed networked storage capabilities—with the industry’s fastest transfer rates of nearly 400Mbps—allow users across the network to access and share data files, music, pictures, and videos easily and without latency. Both are available through SMC’s network of resellers and VARs at suggested retail prices (excluding VAT) of €532.99 and €882.99 respectively.

“Networking is all about accessibility,” said Tony Stramandinoli, SMC Networks’ Vice President of Marketing. “Our expertise in networking leads naturally to NAS and our NAS products provide the ultimate in accessibility on multiple levels: network-wide availability, fail-safe RAID storage, additional network connections via the built-in 4-port Gigabit switch, backup software, USB connectivity, support for UPS power backup and more. It’s a natural next step for SMC Networks.”

Easy to add to any network, management and security are a breeze to set-up and maintain via the Web-based user interface (UI). Supporting Standard RAID 0, 1, 4, and 5 for fault tolerance, with future options for JBOD and BIG, SMC Networks’ NAS Storage servers further ensure data integrity with the extra security that comes from UPS power backup support and hot-swappable hard drive. Four Gigabit Ethernet ports make it the most versatile NAS on the market, allowing users to quickly and easily deploy additional data services in the office; and three USB 2.0 connections make it easy to expand network storage, provide additional backup services, or connect to a USB-UPS to provide temporary backup power in the event of a power failure. Other standard features of the TigerStore NAS Storage Servers include: FTP Server and USB Print Server features, disk space quota management, event logging, UPnP and DLNA support, media server capabilities, hardware health monitoring, and a full SMB backup software application that makes it simple to implement a backup policy for small and medium businesses.
