Norco 5-bay LAN storage

Norco has unveiled the DS-520, a home server NAS (Network Area Storage) device designed to provide a versatile platform for building home server and NAS based on an Intel ULV Celeron M/Pentium M processor. Five hot swappable SATA II drive bays ease the process of adding drives as well as capacity, while three eSATA and four USB 2.0 ports enable users to add external drives as well as a variety of other accessories. Eight individual SATA channels provide expansion capacity of up to 8TB, according to Norco. The DS-520 comes preloaded with Windows Home Server, Linux, Open BSD, or other open source NAS software like OpenFiler and Samba -- which Mac OS X communicates with out of the box. The DS-520 is priced at $650.

    Network Attached Storage

    Correction -- you called this device a "Network Area Storage", and the correct term is "Network Attached Storage". It appears as if this device can also serve as a Direct Attached Storage as well.
