D-Link’s ShareCenter™ Pro 1100 enables users to safely share and back up missioncritical data with advanced features usually found only in higher-end devices: Snapshots, Replication and data Encryption are all included, with no need to purchase additional licenses. ShareCenter™ Pro 1100 has an easy-to-use web GUI, so even users with limited IT skills can install their storage solution in no time. As well as this, the DNS-1100-04 addresses the need for ever increasing storage capacity and provides a variety of additional options for managing and securing business critical data.
NAS File Server
Businesses will appreciate the NAS file server in the DNS-1100-04 which takes full advantage of the accelerated performance provided by iSCSI. The web file manager provides access to files stored on the NAS to users with the appropriate credentials.
A Variety of Backup Options
The DNS-1100-04 offers several backup options which allow administrators and users to control how, when, and where their data is stored. Share files across the network or over the Internet via FTP or access them via the easy-to-use web file manager. Remote back-up enables users to keep a copy of their files on a remote NAS for disaster recovery solution, providing extra data protection, and volume snapshots can restore a whole volume in a matter of minutes; in contrast to traditional backup schemes that can take hours.
iSCSI for IP Networks
iSCSI offers exceptionally fast access performance thanks to block-level data transfer. iSCSI targets appear as a local drive on a client PC. Operations such as configuration, provisioning, and backup can be handled by the administrator in the same way they would be for directly attached storage. By utilising existing Ethernet technology, resulting in easier management, the total cost of ownership of storage can be greatly reduced.
Account management features include the ability to manage users/groups and Read/ Write permissions. Create users, groups, and iSCSI targets with password authentication. Additionally, VLAN tag support combined with AES encryption keeps files secure. iSCSI implements a Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) to guarantee secure access to the storage system.
Share Printers and USB Storage
USB connectivity provides the option to establish a printer server, monitor a UPS, or connect USB devices such as hard drives and flash storage.
RAID for Efficiency and Redundancy
The DNS-1100-04 features 4 Serial ATA (SATA) disk drive bays supporting RAID level 0, 1, 5 or JBOD configurations. Administrators can quickly deploy a network storage solution using inexpensive SATA disk drives, and depending on storage needs, can add more drives as they go. Additionally, S.M.A.R.T. disk diagnostics help to ensure data integrity.
Green Features Save Energy
The DNS-1100-04 incorporates D-Link Green Technology which provides ecofriendly alternatives without compromising performance. If the hard drives become inactive or data is not being transmitted for a defined period of time, DNS 1100-04 will enter stand-by mode to save power. The silent fan will adapt its speed depending on the hard drives’ temperature. Additionally, the scheduled on/off function allows the device to be automatically switched off when it is not in use.
