D-Link 5-bay, 7.5TB NAS

D-Link on Wednesday announced it is shipping its DSN-1100 Network Attached Storage (NAS), meant for use by small- to medium-sized businesses. The device's five bays are capable of holding five 3.5-inch 1.5TB SATA hard drives for a total storage capacity of 7.5TB. The DSN-1100 manages the drives via a built-in IP-SAN Device Manager suite of utilities. An embedded secure server lets users remotely configure and monitor their storage devices.

An internal 10-gigabit iSCSI system-on-chip lets the device process over 80,000 input/outputs per second while combining networking and storage functions on a single silicon chip. There are four 1-gigabit ports in the DSN-1100 with support for IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregate Groups (LAG), allowing them to be grouped to deliver bandwidth as high as 425 megabytes per second. The DSN-1100 can be configured in RAID - 0, 1, 1+0 and 5 arrays.

A 200W power supply is included, while an integrated battery will power the system for 72 hours on a full charge when external power is lost. The DSN-1100 can already be purchased, priced at nearly $1,800.
