Keeping Data Available with  DS508 

The DS508 is designed to serve continuous data access for corporate users. Hot swappable hard drives are easily replaced when a hard drive failure occurs. Data is available 24/7. The DS508 provides very fast data transmission and powerful computing capabilities, which are not only suitable for corporate environments that require efficiency, but also a good choice for electricity users who are massively accessing data on the server. 

The 2 Gigabit LAN port design allows DS508 to work on two subnets simultaneously or in one subnet with 2 different IP addresses. This is specifically designed for corporate environments that use more than one LAN.

DS508 Working with Windows ADS

The DS508 is compatible with Windows ADS. Windows domain users can access shared data from DS508 when they pass Active Directory authentication. This will greatly save your time in creating a large number of accounts for domain users.

DS508 Has Flexible Storage Management

DS508 allows you to create RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, or RAID 6 volumes. Flexible storage management allows you to upgrade from Basic to RAID 1, or to gather with smaller hard drives first, and then develop RAID volumes 1 , RAID 5, or RAID 6 by replacing existing hard drives with larger ones when the budget is permitted. 

In addition, you can also expand RAID 5 and RAID 6 volumes by adding hard drives quickly. When the hard drive on the DS508 is full, you can expand the storage capacity by simply installing an external hard drive to the USB or eSATA port of DS508.
