Asustor AS6204RS Elite Performance and Functionality NAS Storage
Highly stable storage equipment is critical in enterprise environments. The AS6204RS is equipped with a powerful Intel processor and 4GB of memory, providing stable and reliable operation. This combines with ADM’s RAID storage technology and AES 256-bit encryption to provide efficient multi-user access and data security. The AS6204RS is equipped with high-speed Gigabit LAN ports for demanding enterprise applications, while also providing stable performance and enhanced productivity. Performance under iSCSI reaches read and write speeds of up to 357.66 MB/s and 307.1 MB/s. The AS6204RS/AS6204RD is a cost-effective large capacity NAS designed for enterprise environments. Users can install four 16 TB hard disks to immediately create a high-capacity storage space of up to 64 TB. The AS6204RS supports online capacity expansion, allowing for the flexible purchase of enterprise storage equipment. When your budget and storage requirements are smaller, you can purchase a smaller number of hard disks. Additional disks can be purchased as your storage requirements grow. Combined with ASUSTOR’s MyArchive storage technology, this allows you to effectively achieve unlimited storage. Businesses require flexible and agile storage that is able to integrate with existing resources and equipment. The AS6204RS features USB 3.0 ports, 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports, and dual-channel memory allowing the NAS to easily connect to external devices such as USB printers, UPS power supplies, and USB external storage, making it an optimal all-in-one enterprise network storage solution. In order to help users avoid accidentally pushing disk tray buttons and releasing hard disks during operation, ASUSTOR has added a new lock mechanism to its hard disk trays. The lock’s flat-head design ensures that users will not need any special keys or tools to unlock it, only a simple flat-head screwdriver. The new disks trays can be used with all ASUSTOR NAS devices, providing an additional layer of security for applications requiring the frequent swapping of hard disks (e.g., MyArchive). In enterprise environments, storage devices are commonly placed together in a server room. In order to allow administrators to quickly find the NAS from among many servers, the AS6204RS provides a dedicated button on the front panel. When this button is pressed, the LED service light on the rear panel of the NAS will light up. ASUSTOR also offers the mobile NAS management app, AiMaster which provides the exclusive Find Me function. When Find Me is activated, the system status light on the front of the NAS will flash and the system buzzer will sound, helping users to quickly find the NAS. Turning your NAS into a computer with 24/7 availability and tremendous energy efficiency is no longer just a dream. After upgrading the AS6204RS/AS6204RD to 4GB of memory or more, you will be able to use VirtualBox to install different types of operating systems to your NAS, creating virtual machines. After creating a virtual machine, your NAS can become your company’s backup computer, allowing IT staff to maximize resources and achieve optimal effectiveness. In addition to using virtual machines locally via HDMI, you can also remotely use ADM to open already installed operating systems in VirtualBox or use any mobile device (notebook, phone, tablet) as your mobile virtual machine. This makes it convenient for small and medium businesses to perform tasks such as hosting websites, IT management, Web development, application design, or even basic word processing, effectively reducing operating costs and optimizing usage of resources. The AS6204RS provides seamless cross-platform and multi-user access, allowing you to easily connect to your NAS from Windows, Mac OS X, or Unix-like operating systems no matter if you are using a PC, notebook, tablet, or smartphone. ASUSTOR NAS integrates many network management tools including the DHCP server function which can automate IP assignments on your network. Furthermore, Syslog Server can be used to centrally aggregate system logs that are spread out over various network devices for storage and management. These functions allow IT administrators to efficiently manage equipment on enterprise networks, enhancing productivity. With regards to hardware, the ASUSTOR NAS is equipped with a rich variety of I/O interfaces, allowing enterprise users to flexibly integrate existing equipment. With regards to software, users can use App Central to install a wide variety of free enterprise Apps, saving on costs and increasing productivity. The powerful ASUSTOR NAS provides optimal reliability for home and SMB users looking to set up a surveillance system. 4 free camera channels are offered, making it an extremely cost-effective surveillance solution for users with smaller demands. For users with larger demands, the number of camera channels can be expanded up to 36 via purchasable camera licenses. After installing Surveillance Center and its corresponding mobile app AiSecure, users will also be able to stream live surveillance feeds to their smartphones while on the go, keeping an eye on their most valued assets from anywhere.
