ASUStor has announced the launch of its brand new AS 2 series NAS targeted at personal and home users.
The series consists of two sub-series - the AS-20XT series (AS-202T/AS-204T) offers users the essentials for creating a personal cloud, while the AS-20XTE series (AS-202TE/AS-204TE) provides users both personal cloud and digital entertainment functionality. Ideal for users who are using a NAS for the first time, both sub-series are powered by the latest Intel processors.
The AS-20XT series comes equipped with 512MB of DDR3 memory and boasts read and write speeds of 104+ MBps and 74+ MBps respectively. The series offers a variety of powerful cloud storage functions that allow users to easily set up their own backup server, file server, video surveillance solution, Web server and more.
Conversely, the AS-20XTE series devices come equipped with 1GB of DDR3 memory. The AS-20XTE series devices feature an HDMI port and Infrared receiver which can be paired with the XBMC App to turn the NAS into a multimedia player. After downloading and installing the XBMC App from ASUStor’s App Central, users only need to connect their NAS to any HDMI ready display to immediately begin playing all the multimedia content from their NAS. Additionally, users can also opt to purchase ASUStor’s exclusive remote control or install the official XBMC Remote App for free on their mobile device to control all multimedia playback on their NAS.
Both sub-series run on the ADM 2.0 (ASUStor Data Master) OS that features an intuitive GUI which resembles the experience enjoyed on mobile and tablet devices. ADM 2.0 includes an array of features such as a comprehensive set of backup solutions to protect your data, Mission Mode backup to ensure the completion of backup jobs, and FTP Explorer, the first FTP client designed exclusively for use on a NAS. The platform also comes with the App Central App repository that contains over 100 free NAS Apps that users can download to add functionality to their NAS devices.
Users can also utilize ASUStor's exclusive AiMaster and AiData mobile apps to manage their system and data from the convenience of their mobile devices. Users will also be able to stream music and videos, view photos, preview documents, and ultimately enjoy the convenience of cloud access while on the go.
