Subsequent to introducing a single disk NAS (Network Attached Storage) device in August 2004, Compucon now announces 2 new designs of 4 disk NAS devices for small and medium size businesses- one desktop unit and one 1U rack mount unit. These new NAS units are capable of providing redundancy against hard disk failure via RAID-1 or 5, and supporting a hot spare disk that will automatically replace a failed disk. File transfer performance is faster than a server for a client on the local area network and even faster than the single disk NAS. Storage assignment can be done via a web interface, and the procedures are very intuitive.
