The MobileNAS MN4LA+B Series offers a performance tuned Network Attached Storage for high capacity network based data storage. The new 64bit OS provides increased performance, enhanced compatibilities and features. More enhanced than most of the 4 bay tower NAS on the market, the MN4LA+B utilizes the power of the Intel ATOM Dual-Core CPU and 1GB of DDR II memory to provide an exceptionally faster performance. With the increased CPU processing power, the MN4LA+B is able to provide enterprise level features such as iSCSI initiator and target support, snapshot with scheduling and real-time NAS-to-NAS folder replication. Along with a built-in RAID 5 and RAID 6, the MN4LA+B provides enterprise-class features that are normally not included in this product price range.
Dual Gigabit and RAID Hard Drives Protection
MN4LA+B is designed with simple setup and easy maintenance features in mind. Features such as an installation wizard for easy implementation out of the box, convenient web-based management for local or remote configuration, Dual 10/100/1000 network ports supporting network teaming and fail-over redundancy plus RAID protection for your data storage make MN4LA+B a very robust yet easy to use NAS server system.
Feature Rich Network Storage - Built-in Snapshot, Folder Replication and iSCSI
In comparison to other NAS products in the market, MobileNAS is bundled with many enterprise level advanced features without the additional cost. For example, iSCSI target support for iSCSI applications, iSCSI initiator support for future data storage expansion, NAS to NAS folder replication, scheduled or on-demand volume snapshot and local tape backup support are just a few of the many features this product offers.
iSCSI Support for VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V
To take advantage of centralized storage for all virtual machines in VMware ESX or Vsphere, the MN4LA+B can be used as a focal storage point for the VMWare ESX or ESXi server hosting multiple virtual machines. Utilizing the MN4LA+B as an iSCSI target storage system for the VMware ESX/ESXi server, the MN4LA+B is ready for your VMware storage virtualization needs.
Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization environment is also supported. With the support of SPC-3, iSCSI can be use in Microsoft Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 clustering environment for high-availability applications.
