MicroNet's 4TB NAS server

MicroNet on Monday unveiled its Platinum NAS 4.0, offering a new 4TB (terabyte) capacity for SMB (small-to-medium business) network attached storage: "The Platinum NAS 4.0 delivers an optimal blend of capacity, performance, and high-availability in a simple-to-deploy and easy-to- manage solution that provides up to 4 TB of shared network storage capacity, giving customers one-third more capacity while consuming one-third less energy than competitive products," the company said. The solution offers true hot-swappable disk drives for zero down time operation and supports RAID levels 0, 1 and 5, including one-to-many RAID 1 mirroring. In addition an integrated backplane boosts signal integrity and eliminates the need to daisy-chain disk drive cables. MicroNet said Platinum SAS 4.0 also features support for uninterrupted online RAID initialization and simultaneous online RAID expansion and RAID level or size migration.

The Platinum NAS 4.0 uses an Intel XScale 64-bit network storage processor optimized for fast file I/O operations and a RAID controller that supports four independent SATA drive channels along with 256MB of write- back/write-through error correcting cache memory. Additionally, the Platinum NAS 4.0 is the only NAS server in its class with standard dual-channel gigabit Ethernet connectivity, the company said.

MicroNet's Platinum NAS 4.0 will be available in the second quarter of 2007 with pricing starting at $880 for a 1TB model.
