Addonics Technologies today announced the Secure NAS series of storage appliances, which combine the benefits of RAID, Network Attached Storage (NAS), Direct Attached Storage (DAS) and hardware AES 256-bit encryption all in one enclosure. The new Secure NAS R5 is tailored for storing large volumes of sensitive data, for securely transporting large volumes of data between different locations, or for any application that requires protection against data theft.

The Secure NAS can be directly attached to any system through a high speed eSATA connection, which allows the quick transfer of large data volumes. The same data in the Secure NAS can be shared over a 1Gb network. The entire RAID volume, including the boot sector and partition table, is encrypted. Data written onto or retrieved from the RAID is encrypted and decrypted on-the-fly by a high performance FIPS certified AES 256-bit crypto engine. Encryption is activated through the simple insertion of a Cipher key when powering up the Secure NAS. There is no password to remember or the installation of any software.

The Secure NAS R5 model, the first in the Secure NAS family, accommodates up to five 3.5-inch SATA hard drives. All five drives are configured in a single RAID volume for high performance and reliability. By using RAID 5 configuration, a storage volume up to 16TB can be created by using five 4TB hard drives. Every Secure NAS enclosure includes a Gigabit Ethernet port, and a USB port that allows attaching up to 15 USB drives to the LAN. The Secure NAS supports data throughput exceeding 85MB per second across a Gigabit Ethernet network.

The Secure NAS includes a built-in SMB/ Samba server for file sharing over LAN and a built-in FTP server for file access over the internet. Both models are operating system independent.

The retail price of the Secure NAS R5 is $499.

Looks nice, but I RAID setups (except mirroring) are not as reliable with larger capacity hard disks as they used to be, especially when you need to rebuild after a drive failure. I'd rather have a system that allows mirroring instead.

This system allows mirroring, striping, and parity RAID setups (RAID 0, 1, 5, etc.).

From the device manufacturer's specification page:

"Drives are connected to a Port Multiplier that can be configured as RAID0 (Striping), RAID1 (Mirroring), RAID 5 (Parity), RAID 5+S, Large Drive (Concatenation), Clone Mode (N-Way Mirror) or individual drive*"
