Plextor Enters Network Attached Storage Market; External Hard Disk Drive Offers Print Server, FTP, Back-up, and Security Functions.
The Plextor PX-EH series of NAS devices are designed for professionals and small businesses that require extra data storage capacity and easy backup capability. In addition to providing instantly accessible shared storage across the network, the devices include a print server that can share a USB-connected printer. Other built-in functions include an automated backup scheduler, administrative security, and the ability to configure the device as a dedicated FTP server. Throughput for FTP transfers is a fast 94.5 Mbps, compared to 60-85 Mbps for comparable products.
The Plextor PX-EH Network Attached Storage devices are compatible with both Microsoft(R) Windows(R) and Apple(R) Macintosh(R) operating systems. Users enjoy silent operation thanks to the heat-releasing aluminum case and convection cooling design, which eliminates the need for a noisy fan. Set up is easy for customers with a DHCP server -- just connect to the network and power up the unit.
