updated 07:15 pm EDT, Mon July 15, 2013

Two and four bay models available with dual-core Atom

Network storage solution provider Asustor has announced the launch of its brand new AS 3 Series Network Attached Storage (NAS). The AS 3 Series NAS devices feature multimedia applications,including support for 1080p high-definition video playback. They are the first devices from Asustor to come equipped with Intel Atom 1.6 GHz dual-core processors, along with 1GB of DDR3 memory. The AS 3 line has been launched with the two-bay AS-302T model and the four-bay AS-304T model.

In addition to its HDMI interface inherited from Asustor AS 6 Series, the AS 3 Series features an infrared receiver and 3.5mm audio jack. After installing the XBMC multimedia player app, users will be able to use the HDMI interface to play audio and video from the NAS directly to any HDMI-ready display. Pairing XBMC with the optional remote control will allow users to control all multimedia playback from their NAS. Music stored on the device can be played back through USB speakers, utilizing the audio jack, or connecting the NAS to an amplifier via HDMI.

The Asustor supports JBOD, RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10, assuming adequate drive quantities are available for the RAID configuration desired. AES 256-bit encryption of individual shared folders is available as well.

All models in the series come with the ADM 2.0 (Asustor Data Master) operating system, which features a newly optimized NAS user interface. The Searchlight search engine supports fuzzy searches and allows users to instantly find any files, folders or apps on the NAS. Newly-added Mission Mode backup ensures that backup jobs will not be cancelled because of any connection problems. Additionally, ADM 2.0 also features FTP Explorer, the first FTP client designed exclusively for use on NAS devices.

Neither retail pricing nor availability dates are available.
