  • High Capacity: Up To 2.2 Terabytes
  • Low Cost: $5/GB
  • Fast: 63 MB/sec

Performance sets the Custom NAS Model 4200 apart from lesser ATA RAID storage servers, while still outpricing SCSI units. Easy to use, the included browser-based utility makes server setup fast and simple.

Speed

The Defiant has hardware components carefully selected for maximum performance. The fast 1.8 Ghz AMD processor gives excellent speed, with a dual processor option. The Tyan Server-class motherboard give true 64-bit throughput, coupled with the Escalade 64 bit hardware RAID card and an Intel 64 bit 10-100-1000-network interface. As a result the Defiant transfers 63 Megabytes per second over Gigabit ethernet.

Capacity

With a complement of twelve 200 GB hard drives, this model Defiant has a 2.2 Terabytes of RAID-5 protected storage. Include a tape library for security using the included Ultra 160 SCSI interface.

Ease of Use

Your Defiant will be a productive part of your network in just minutes after. Plug it in, connect it to your network, power it up and type in its logon URL at any network browser. Its graphical browser interface will have you setting up user accounts immediately, just by pointing and clicking. Full documentation is included. No linux knowledge necessary; Webmin let's you administer the Defiant as easily as surfing the web.

Designed for High Uptime

Ample cooling, RAID 5 redundancy, hot swap drive trays and dual redundant power supplies are all part of keeping the Defiant online. As an added precaution, include the optional Dark Site controller, which monitors CPU temperature, fan RPM and many other system safeguards, then emails you through SNMP if maintenance is needed.

Extra Features

Unlike stripped-down NAS appliances, the Defiant has its own boot drive. If you prefer, Windows 2K Server can be loaded in lieu of Linux. Bakbone or other Linux client backup software can be loaded. With the optional SCSI interface, any number of high end tape drives or libraries can be driven. The included Webmin software allows you to let the Defiant as a workgroup backup server, a network print server, or an ftp server, increasing its utility and decreasing the strain on your computer equipment budget.
