Appro NAS Storage Solution


									  Appro NAS Storage Solution

  Ease of Use Network Attached Storage for
  Enterprise Mission-Critical Data Center Applications
Ne Appro Storage AR3015 NAS
  The Appro AR3015 NAS is designed for boosting network capacity without adding management complexity. It
  is simple and easy to use and it is ideal for storage hungry applications in high-density environments. The Appro
  AR3015 NAS is equipped with the power and features to support today’s most demanding network infrastructures.

  For file sharing, this NAS system supports Microsoft®, UNIX, Linux, Apple and Web clients. It’s dual Gigabit
  Ethernet with loading-balancing and fail-over ensure that all clients attached to AR3015 NAS are serviced quickly
  and continuously. For applications demanding large file size transmissions, Appro AR3015 NAS optimized
  embedded OS, RAID 10 or 50 with 64 bit PCI-X bus for disk network I/O outperforms the competition. If data
  back up is the primary use for network storage, this 3U storage is capable of supporting up to 6TB in 15 hot-swap
  hard disk drive bays with expansion ports for higher capacity. And for enhanced protection and mission-critical
  applications, Appro AR3015 NAS offers server to server data mirroring and fail-over, snap shot data recovery and
  UPS support. Most importantly, Appro 3015 NAS offers the most competitive value when it comes to total cost
  of ownership.

     Appro Storage Solution

     Server to Server Fail-Over and Mirroring
     Appro AR3015 NAS offers a total solution for data back up and server failure. The AR3015 NAS offers server to
     server data back up where the primary and secondary NAS are connected by high-speed Gigabit Ethernet with a
     private IP address. As data contained in the primary NAS are updated or deleted, the same updates are processed
     to the data contained in the secondary NAS in real-time. Since this transaction is done through a dedicated Gigabit
     Ethernet, client access speed and response time to and from the primary NAS is not affected.
