Enhance Technology Inc., released its UltraShare NS Series lineup of NAS devices this week, which the company said offers high availability clustering, device-to-device data replication, many-to-one replication, and snapshots over NAS/10GbE/iSCSI/Fibre Channel for SMBs and midmarket customers. The company says that the NS series is suitable for file sharing, data streaming, video surveillance storage, and as a disk-based backup target.
The NS2120 and NS3160 each feature Quad Core 2.0Ghz Intel Xeon processors, while the NS2080 relies on a 3.3Ghz Intel i3-2120 chip. The NS3160 can be loaded with up to 16 individual HDDs with a total capacity of 48TB, while the smaller NS2120 and NS2080 are equipped with 12 and eight HDD bays, respectively. All three make use of 3.5-inch, 3TB HDDs, the company said. The NS Series can be expanded up to 336TB.
The three NS Series units all offer iSCSI and Fibre Channel interfaces, PCI-E expansion slots, hardware-based RAID with AE256-bit encryption and other features, according to the company.
