Dual-bay NAS adds iTunes, BitTorrent server

Mini-PC case manufacturer Shuttle has created its first network-attached storage device aimed at home users and small offices. The Omninas KD20 is a two-bay system made of aluminium and white plastic, claimed to be both energy efficient and extremely quiet. Both of the drive bays are hot-swappable and can each support 3.5-inch hard drives and solid state disks up to 4TB in capacity.

Drives can be monitored with S.M.A.R.T. and can be set in RAID-0, RAID-1, or JBOD. A card reader, two USB 2.0 ports and a single USB 3.0 port can connect more external storage devices to the network, or can be used to copy data from SD cards and USB drives to the NAS. A connected USB device could also be used for time-controlled backups of data stored on the KD20. A Gigabit Ethernet port provides network connectivity for the device, which can use 15.5 Watts while being used, and 9 Watts while hibernating. A DLNA-compatible media server is also built in for streaming content, as well as seperate server applications for iTunes and BitTorrent.

The Omninas KD20 is on sale in Europe for 130 euros ($170), however a US release is not currently planned.
