NAS with iTunes support
Sans Digital has unveiled its MN2L two-bay network storage enclosure that allows users to share documents and files on a home or office network. The device features FTP support to access files remotely over the internet, and offers built-in account management to keep data safe by giving read-only or full read/write permissions to specific users or groups. The device uses the latest SATA II technology and supports hot-swapping hard drives with RAID 1 (mirroring) and RAID 0 (striping) to guard against failures or expand usable storage space. The MN2L supports Mac, Linux, and Windows systems on the network and features built-in iTunes server support for sharing music to a Mac or PC. A built-in BitTorrent download station also allows users to download BitTorrent files without a powered-on computer. The MN2L is priced at $300.
