Overview

Addonics family of NAS adapters is designed to easily convert any USB storage device into a NAS (network attached storage) appliance. The USB storage device can be as simple as a USB thumb drive or a high performance multi-terabyte RAID storage system. There is no complicated set up required to share data over the LAN or WAN (your private cloud storage). Once set up, the NAS adapter can also be managed remotely.

The NAS adapter is very small (about the size of a cigarette pack), consumes very little power (~ 2.5 watts, half or less than the power consumed by a typical night light) and operates in complete silence. These unique featurse enable the NAS adapter to be deployed practically anywhere with network connection, particularly where space and power are limited. It is an ideal tool for building a custom Network Attached Storage for entertainment system, for mobile enviornment, unattended survillance video storage, your personal cloud storage, simple Network storage for back up of important files for all the workstations on the network and many other storage applications. When couples with Addonics full suite of RAID Towers and Flash readers, you can build yourself the world smallest NAS appliance to a large storage farm.
