Sans Digital Launches 5-Bay AccuNAS Tower AN5L+
Sans Digital just announced its newest AccuNAS product, the AN5L+. The AN5L+ is a five hard drive bay iSCSI and NAS unified storage tower utilizing the latest Intel ATOM based Dual Core CPU with dual Gigabit Ethernet ports. The AccuNAS AN5L+ offers a performance tuned Network Attached Storage for high capacity network based data storage. The 64bit operating system (OS) provides increased performance, enhanced compatibilities and features. More enhanced than most of the 5 bay tower NAS on the market, the AN5L+ utilizes the power of the Intel ATOM Dual-Core CPU and 1GB of DDR III memory to provide an exceptionally faster performance. With the increased CPU processing power, the AN5L+ is able to provide enterprise level features such as an iSCSI initiator & target support, snapshot with scheduling, real-time NAS-to-NAS folder replication, and IPMI.
Based on the existing popular EliteNAS system architectures that range from 1U 4-bay to 8U 72-bay rackmounts, the AN5L+ provides the same capability of supporting both NAS and iSCSI simultaneously. Powered by the Intel ATOM D525 Dual Core CPU with 1 Gigabyte of DDR III memory, four virtual CPUs (Dual Core combined with Hyper-Threading) working simultaneously to provide network performance of over 80MB/s under RAID 6. Low power consumption on the Intel ATOM based CPU also allows AN5L+ to generate less heat and requires less power which coincides with Sans Digital's commitment to contribute to a "greener" earth.
