The AN4L+B is a performance tuned Windows/MAC/Linux files sharing NAS
server dual Gigabit server for high capacity IP based data storage. Much
more advanced than most 4-bay Windows/MAC/Linux share + iSCSI towers on the
market, the AN4L+B utilizes the power of Intel CPU and 4GB of DDR III memory, to
provide exceptionally fast performance. With increased CPU processing power, the
AN4L+B is capable of providing enterprise-level features such as iSCSI initiator
and target support, snapshot with scheduling, and real-time folder-to-folder
replication. Along with built-in RAID 5 and 6, the
AN4L+B provides enterprise-class features that are normally not included in
product of such price range.
Sans Digital recommends the use of enterprise hard drives when in use
with any RAID controller applications. Standard desktop or green desktop drive
may not be supported and may compromise RAID system stability and performance.

AN4L+B is designed with simple setup and easy maintenance features in mind.
Features such as installation wizard for easy implementation out of the box,
convenient web-based management for local or remote configuration, Dual
10/100/1000 gigabit ports supporting teaming and fail-over
redundancy plus RAID protection for your data storage making the AN4L+B a very
robust yet easy to use Windows/MAC/Linux sharing NAS server system.
Feature Rich Data Storage - Built-in Snapshot, Folder
Replication and iSCSI
In comparison to other products in the market, AN4L+B is bundled with
many enterprise level advanced features without the additional cost. For
example, iSCSI target support for iSCSI applications, iSCSI initiator support
for future data storage expansion, folder to folder replication, scheduled or
on-demand volume snapshot and local tape backup support just to name a few.
iSCSI Support for VMware
To take advantage of centralized storage for all virtual machines in VMware ESX
or Vsphere, the AN4L+B can be uses as a focal storage point for the VMWare ESX
or ESXi sever hosting multiple virtual machines. Utilizing the AN4L+B as an
iSCSI target storage system for the VMware ESX/ESXi server, the AN4L+B is ready
for your VMware storage virtualization needs.
