ASUSTOR launches new AS6204RS/AS6204RD rackmount NAS models powered by Intel Braswell quad-core processors and 4 GB SO-DIMM DDR3L memories. These models are equipped with stable performance and a rich variety of functionality such as comprehensive backup and storage services, seamless integration with virtual environments and simplified management for network administrators, creating an optimal enterprise storage solution.
ASUSTOR Inc., a leading innovator and provider of network storage solutions, has announced the launch of 2 brand new rackmount NAS models powered by Intel Braswell processors. These 2 new models are the single power supply AS6204RS and dual power supply AS6204RD. Both come with powerful core specifications and a rich variety of expansion interfaces allowing for unparalleled agility and seamless integration in demanding enterprise environments. The 4 high speed Ethernet ports also allow businesses to flexibly deploy network traffic providing stable access performance. Furthermore, the AS6204RS and AS6204RD have passed stringent hard disk compatibility testing, and support the largest hard disks on the market (10TB), allowing businesses to create 40TB high capacity storage spaces.
Seamless integration to simplify daily system management
The AS6204 and AS6204RD come built-in with the ADM operating system, which features a simplified graphical user interface that feels intuitive for any first-time user. ADM provides a variety of management tools for enterprise including seamless integration with Windows AD account management, batch account creation and importation, support for Windows ACL 13 types of advanced file permissions, two-way backup with Mission Mode, event notifications, system self-checkup tools and iSCSI snapshots. These tools help to simplify daily system management while increasing productivity.
"ASUSTOR’s AiMaster mobile NAS management app features the Find Me function which causes the NAS to beep and flash its lights, making it easy to find"
“With regards to software, ASUSTOR provides the simplified ADM operating system. With regards to hardware, ASUSTOR’s efforts are apparent in the attention to detail that we put into crafting each device,” said Johnny Chen, Product Manager at ASUSTOR. “For example, most enterprise server rooms contain multiple servers. When IT staff goes in to perform maintenance on particular device it may be difficult to locate the device quickly. ASUSTOR’s AiMaster mobile NAS management app features the Find Me function which causes the NAS to beep and flash its lights, making it easy to find. Also, each rackmount NAS also features a dedicated service light on the back of the device. This light becomes activated after pushing a button on the front panel and helps guide IT staff to locate the correct device.”
High-speed multi-user access and multitasking
Under RAID 5 configurations, transfer performance on the AS6204RS and AS6204RD is able to approach the maximum throughput of Ethernet with read and write speeds of over 307 MB/s and 357 MB/s (Link Aggregation, iSCSI/RAID 5), providing stable multi-user access and multitasking. Additionally, all data and connections can be protected via a variety of features such as RAID data protection, 256-bit data encryption, firewall, Network Defender, HTTPS connections, 2-step verification mechanism, and antivirus.
