POPnetserver 4500 (Gbit & Dual Ethernet LAN)


The POPnetserver 4500 NAS device is the ideal storage solution for growing companies including small to medium-sized businesses and enterprise departments and workgroups. Installing on the network in less than five minutes, the system provides up to 480GB of storage and a multitude of performance features, including hardware caching, load balancing, and high bandwidth.

For a fraction of the cost, the POPnetserver 4500 offers data protection and reliability features only found in higher end NAS appliances, setting a new standard for affordable data availability. Integrated disaster recovery software utility provides file protection for the client and server, while dual LAN fail-over protects online connections. The POPnetserver 4500 can be pre-configured for RAID 5 (disk striping with parity) plus hot sparing to provide automatic fail-over protection. Multiple RAID volume with integrated cache subsystem supports four variable volume types for more efficient application usage.

Multiple File System Options
A 32-bit file system with enhanced buffer and cache can be configured for maximum file protection or improved performance. Options include:
  • RAID 0 (disk striping) - one large virtual drive with data striped across all physical drives (no loss in usable capacity)
  • RAID 1 (disk mirroring) - second set of drives duplicates the first set for maximum data protection (50% usable capacity)
  • RAID 5 (disk striping with parity) - the size of one volume is reserved for parity checking
  • RAID 5+ (RAID 5 with hot spare) - additional hot spare volume is reserved on the RAID 5 volume; no performance difference should one of the disks fail within the RAID 5 volume.
