Secure Digital File Sharing Feature
DNS-343 does not support Western Digitals new Desktop disk drives with Advanced Formatting Technology.
The D-Link DNS-343 4-Bay Network Storage Enclosure enables you to add disk storage on the network to share documents, files, and digital media such as music, videos and photos. With 4 bays, this storage enclosure is ideal for server deployment in office settings, allowing businesses to flexibly add up to four internal SATA drives on a per-need basis to fulfill storage requirements as they grow. Remote access to files from the Internet is also possible with the builtin FTP server. With this FTP feature1, company employees can access work files via the Internet while outside the office. In addition, data will be kept safe, whether accessed locally or over the Internet, through owner-defined rights given to specific users or groups. When you configure the DNS-343, you can set up access privileges by setting up users, groups and folders and their respective permissions. This security feature is ideal for an office environment with employee-specific sensitive data.
Stream Digital Media Content With Built In Media Server
Easily back up your digital media files to the DNS-343 for safekeeping. After securing your files, enjoy the benefits of its built-in UPnP AV media server as you stream digital content to compatible media players (such as those found in D-Link's MediaLounge product line). An extra functionality offered by the DNS-343 is the built-in OLED screen, which updates you on drive quotes, server status, and other integral system information in real time.
Protection, Performance and Reliability
The availability of five different hard drive modes (Standard, JBOD, RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5) allows you to choose the configuration best suited to your needs. Standard mode creates four separately accessible hard drives. JBOD combines the drives together in linear fashion for maximum space efficiency. RAID 0 combines the drives in a 'striped' configuration, and is the choice offering the highest performance. RAID 1 causes the drives to mirror each other, providing maximum protection. If one drive fails while configured as RAID 1, the unaffected drive continues to function as a single drive until the failed drive is replaced. The new drive will then be remirrored, allowing the DNS-343 to return to its previously secured state. RAID 5 allocates data across three or more drives and combines storage efficiency with reliable file protection.
