Addonics NAS Adapter

Addonics on Thursday announced the release of its NAS Adapter that lets users add USB-based storage devices to local area networks. The USB storage device can then be shared by any user on the network and up to eight outside users with an Internet connection via FTP access. The adapter is compatible with SMB and open-source Samba network protocols, and can be configured as a printer server or BitTorrent downloader.

Administrators can set up the adapter to restrict folder access to read only. Users can quickly connect their own LAN-based storage devices with RAID capability through the adapter. Connections include a 10/100Mbps Ethernet jack and a USB 2.0 port strong enough to power 2.5-inch hard drives and other USB storage devices without an AC cable.

The NAS adapter is compatible with most versions of Mac OS X and Windows as well as Linux 2.6.x, Solaris 9 and other common platforms. It is available now, priced at $55. [via SlashGear]
