The DS408 is designed with RAID 1/5 protection, Windows ADS support, scheduled power on/off, multiple data backups, USB printer sharing, and dynamic website hosting. DS408 keeps business data available 24/7 andprovides speedy data transmission and powerful computing capability, which is not only suitable for corporate environments that demand on efficiency, but also a great choice for power users who massively access data on the server. DS408 is compatible with Windows ADS domain. Windows domain users are able to access data shared from DS408 when they pass the Active Directory authentication. This will greatly save your time on creating large amount of accounts for the domain users. This server allows you to create RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, or RAID 6 volume on it. Its flexible storage management allows you to upgrade from Basic to RAID 1, or to assemble with smaller hard drives first, and later on expand the RAID 1, RAID 5, or RAID 6 volume by replacing the existing hard drives with larger ones when budget is allowed. Moreover, you can also expand the RAID 5 and RAID 6 volume by adding a hard drive on the fly. When the hard drives on DS408 are full, you can expand the storage capacity simply by attaching an external hard drive to the USB port of DS408.
