The D-Link® 2-Bay Network Storage Device (DNS-321-1TB) is the perfect way to store, share, and safeguard your documents, music, videos, and photos. It comes pre-loaded with one 1TB hard drive1 so it’s ready to use right out of the box. Plus, with the D-Link tool-less installation, you can easily insert a second SATA hard drive without any tools or attaching any cables. Additionally, the built-in UPnP™ AV media server enables streaming of digital content to compatible network media players (such as those found in the D-Link MediaLounge™ product line) as well as popular media player applications used in computers.
PROTECTION AND PERFORMANCE
The availability of four different hard drive modes (Standard, JBOD, RAID 0, and RAID 1) allows you to choose the configuration best suited for your needs. Standard mode creates two separately accessible hard drives. JBOD combines both hard drives into one for maximum space efficiency. RAID 0 combines all drives in a ‘striped’ configuration, splitting data evenly across the hard disk drives to provide the highest performance, while RAID 1 causes the drives to mirror each other, providing maximum protection. If one drive fails while configured as RAID 1, the unaffected drive will continue to function as a single drive until the failed drive is replaced.
With the included feature-rich backup software, you can create schedules and rules including real-time full or incremental backups. The Web-based configuration software allows users to establish storage quotas for specific users and groups. The DNS-321-1TB can automatically back up your data regardless of the Operating System (OS) of your computer (Windows®, Mac®, or Linux®). The DNS-321-1TB also features a built-in FTP server2 to access files through the Internet.
With its sleek design and quiet cooling fans, the DNS-321-1TB can be easily placed on your desk at home or in the office. Utilizing SATA hard drives and gigabit connectivity, the 2-Bay Network Storage Device (DNS-321-1TB) is a high performance, cost-effective solution for your home or small office data storage needs.
1. One 1TB 3.5” SATA hard drive included. When referring to hard drive capacity, one gigabyte, or GB equals one billion bytes and one terabyte or TB, equals one trillion bytes. Your computer’s operating system may use a different standard of measurement and report a lower capacity. In addition, some of the listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions and thus will not be available for data storage. The internal SATA disk drive comes pre-formatted. RAID 0 and RAID 1 require two (2) 3.5” SATA drives. To avoid compatibility issues in RAID 0 or 1 operation, use SATA drives from the same manufacturer. Formatted drive capacity for RAID 1 operation is dependent on the drive capacity of the smallest drive. May not work with older generation SATA drives.
2. Note that use of an FTP Server to access files over the Internet does not provide for secure or encrypted transmissions. It is recommended that users utilize a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to establish a secure FTP session.
