Western Digital Corp. announced a new storage server aimed at small- and medium-size businesses with an optional ability to back up data to off-site cloud storage this week.

The company’s Sentinel DX4000 network storage server performs automated server-based backup and restore operations for up to 25 devices on a network. Western Digital said the device offers RAID levels 1 and 5 and a redundant network connection that switches automatically to a second network port in the event of a connection failure.

Users can also rely on an optional DR software and store data offsite, the company said.

The server is equipped with a 1.8GHz Intel D525 Dual Core Atom processor, 2 GB of RAM and runs on the Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials operating system.  The DX4000 comes with either 4 TB and 8 TB of storage; the company said the 4 TB model costs $949.99 and its larger cousin runs $1,499.99.
