AXIOMTEK Rolls Out FASTORA NAS-104AW Storage Management Platform

8/16/2005 - AXIOMTEK Co. Ltd. has announced the latest addition to its FASTORA network storage solutions with the new NAS-104AW server appliance. Built for data centers and sharing platforms, the FASTORA NAS-104AW is combined with an affordable, yet high-performance Serial ATA (SATA)-based NAS solution, and incorporated with the Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003 operating system to meet the demands of easy to use document management. In addition, adding the backup and instant recovery software—ExBoot, the FASTORA NAS-104AW provides a fault tolerant storage solution for SMB’s and entry-level enterprise storage platforms.

The FASTORA NAS-104AW is a high-performance 1U NAS-Engine featuring Intel® Pentium® 4 processors up to 3.4GHz or Intel® Celeron® processors up to 2.8GHz, up to 4GB of RAM, and 4 hot-swappable drive trays accommodating 3.5" SATA drives. It is equipped with dual gigabit Ethernet connectivity for trunking and fail-over management to offer network fault tolerance, which is highly efficient for mass data transmission. The FASTORA NAS-104AW makes effective file sharing across heterogeneous environments simple: environments like Windows, UNIX, and Macintosh platforms. The server also supports TCP/IP, CIFS, NFS, HTTP, FTP, and AppleTalk protocols. The PCI expansion slot can be leveraged for enterprise needs to connect to Direct Attached Storage (DAS) and/or tape devices.

The FASTORA NAS-104AW utilizes Microsoft® Windows Storage Server 2003 which features simple management and a low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) to assist data centralizing and backup. It strengthens data protection by providing OS failover, Mirroring, VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service), and more. The VSS makes backup data readily available to clients, even with recovery version options, which ensures that data is being used more flexibly and efficiently. For IT administrators, the FASTORA NAS-104AW can work with their current business investments. These include server management infrastructures, such as the Virtual Disk Service, Distributed File System (DFS), and Storage Management Service.

AXIOMTEK has specially bundled the FASTORA NAS-104AW with a powerful backup utility—ExBoot, the backup and instant recovery software. ExBoot allows outstanding backup capability with the whole system and instant external bootup, solving the difficulties of downtime and allowing the continuous run of applications on the NAS.

“Considering the data growth and different demands of NAS usage for SMB customers, the FASTORA R&D team is devoted to developing the best, yet affordable data storage solutions with value-added features on a WSS platform,” the Business Development Manager of AXIOMTEK, Aaron Lung, commented. “With the ExBoot backup software, enterprise data is double protected. The FASTORA NAS-104AW features high-performance functionalities, but at a much more cost-effective price, and is indeed the perfect data protection engine for data centers and distributed computing environments for SMB’s. We believe our products are the right fit for any market.”
