the SpeeD of iSCSi ComBineD With the ConVenienCe of naS
the D-link 4-Bay ShareCenter Duo (DnS-346) combines naS and iSCSi technology in a single unit. this hybrid system allows for separate dedicated naS and
iSCSi volumes. high transfer rates are attainable via the iSCSi interface in addition to naS features such as ftp access. on a conventional iSCSi-only device,
such naS features are not possible, since iSCSi does not use file-based storage. the 4-Bay ShareCenter Duo iSCSi/naS hybrid provides you with the best of
both worlds.

five different hard drive modes (Standard, JBoD, raiD 0, raiD 1, raiD 5) al ow you to choose the configuration best suited to your needs. Standard mode creates
four separately accessible hard drives. JBoD combines the drives together in linear fashion for maximum space efficiency. raiD 0 combines the drives in a
“striped” configuration, and is the choice offering the highest performance. raiD 1 causes the drives to mirror each other, providing maximum protection. if one
drive fails while configured as raiD 1, the unaffected drive continues to function as a single drive until the failed drive is replaced. the new drive wil then be
remirrored, al owing the 4-Bay ShareCenter Duo to return to its previous state. raiD 5 al ocates data across three or more drives and combines storage efficiency
with reliable file protection.
