January 24, 2011 —& New Zealand, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for business and consumers, today introduced the next generation ShareCenter Pulse 2-Bay Network Attached Storage designed to enhance file sharing, secure data, and stream content to media players.
The new D-Linkincorporates a full complement of next-generation technology, including a fast Ethernet connection and support for up to two internal 3.5-inch SATA hard drives* — installed by simply sliding them in with no tools or cables needed. Also included are a built-in FTP server for accessing files via the Internet, built-in UPnP AV media server for streaming digital content and RAID 1 technology for backing up and mirroring files.
“The ShareCenter Pulse offers an extremely powerful and flexible solution for storing and sharing digital media across a network or the Internet,” said Maurice Famularo, Marketing Director,& New Zealand. “It addresses the growing market need to store and share an ever-increasing amount of data, while offering built-in protection to keep valuable data, photos, videos and other important files intact.”
The D-Link DNS-320 comes with D-Link’s Setup Wizard and Easy Search Utility, which allows users to locate the ShareCenter Pulse anywhere on the network. Once located, this utility can be used to map the hard drive(s) so they will appear in “My Computer” on their PC. Backup software is also included on the CD to facilitate back up of files from a computer to the ShareCenter Pulse manually, according to a schedule, or in real-time. Real-time backups provide a method of safeguarding against unforeseen data loss.
A convenient USB port on the front of the ShareCenter can be used to attach external USB storage drives, USB printers, or an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for monitoring.
For businesses and consumers interested in reducing their energy costs and helping to save the environment, D-Link Green products provide eco-friendly alternatives without compromising performance. The ShareCenter Pulse uses hard drive power management and Smart Fan speed control to reduce energy costs, minimise noise and prolong the lifespan of installed hard drives.
