Mini NAS

The Addonics Mini NAS is a small portable Network Attached Storage enclosure solution. It comes built in with fast Ethernet 10/100Mbps connection and any 2.5" SATA hard drive or Solid State Drive (SSD) can be installed into the Mini NAS and become instantly sharable over the LAN. A USB printer can also be shared over the LAN simultaneously when attached to the Mini NAS. With a size equivalent to a tape cassette and weight less than a pound, the Mini NAS can be easily moved around or installed into very small spaces.

Similar to the NAS adapter, the Mini NAS supports both SMB (Server Message Block) and the open source Samba network protocols, allowing for cross-platform access of all shared data for most versions of Windows, Mac OS X, and various Linux distributions. For remote users who are not connected over the LAN, the Mini NAS provides FTP access for up to 8 simultaneous users anywhere in the world with an internet connection. In addition, the Mini NAS can also be configured as a Bit-Torrent downloading appliance or as an iTune media server..
