D-Link Ships 5-Bay NAS for SMBs

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. -- D-Link today announced it is now shipping a powerful solution for the growing data storage needs of small-to-medium sized businesses. Its new 5-bay iSCSI Storage Area Network (SAN) Array enclosure is capable of holding up to 7.5 terabytes of data. Each bay accommodates one 3.5-inch SATA drive, up to 1.5TB and higher when larger capacity disks are introduced and firmware updates are made available.

The new DSN-1100 is designed with the same advanced System-on-a-Chip (SoC) technology included in D-Link's DSN-3000 family of higher capacity SAN arrays but is housed in an elegant, compact desktop chassis.

This fast storage solution is targeted to SMBs whose near-line storage is full or near capacity, and who want to supplement their primary backup and recovery device, or need to add more comprehensive network storage management.

To meet those needs, the DSN-1100 features an embedded, user-friendly IP-SAN Device Manager (IDM), a suite of utilities that allow monitoring and control via the Storage Management Initiative-Specification (SMI-S) command set.

Combined with an embedded secure server, D-Link's newest storage enclosure allows users to remotely configure and monitor their SAN storage subsystems.
