It's time to get NAS-ty. D-Link has unveiled the DNS-340L ShareCenter, a 4-bay NAS box aimed at home users and small businesses.
This storage appliance features four hot-swappable 3.5" SATA bays, and they can be RAIDed together in 0, 1, 5, 10, and 1+0 configurations, alongside plain ol' JBOD. The box can also natively encrypt volumes for extra security. Networking is handled by a pair of Gigabit Ethernet ports, while processing power is provided by a 1.2GHz CPU backed up with 512MB of RAM.
The DNS-340L can be set up as an iSCSI target, making it an ideal candidate for IP surveillance camera applications. A single USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports can be used to attach extra external storage, and this box can also be hooked up to D-Link's mydlink cloud service for access from anywhere. As expected, a bevy of backup options is available, including support for Apple's Time Machine service, and the device can be managed using a web-based interface.
D-Link's latest is available today for $299.99.
